Recently Declassified Testimonials from the Starr Conspiracy

DETAILS: Due to confidentiality agreements and professional courtesy, there’s only a bit I can share with you about my time as an agent of the Starr Conspiracy (formerly Starr Tincup). During the three years I worked there as “Agent 420, the Alchemist” (yes really, we all had agent numbers and cool nicknames), I had the opportunity to learn from some of the most brilliant minds in marketing, business development and design as well as work with some of the most dedicated and detail-oriented operators I’ve ever known. My work there included web design, graphic design, video production, motion graphics and software demos. During the last two years, I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to work from home two days a week, which in no way effected my ability to meet deadlines, participate in meetings or respond to emails. This was my first job officially “telecommuting” and it was extremely successful, which led to me eventually striking out on my own as an independent creative.

Below is a list of recently declassified testimonials from fellow agents of the Starr Conspiracy as well as a few behind-the-scenes videos that gives a taste of what it was like to work for such a unique agency.
