What began as a one-woman show from a home office in Roland Park, has grown into a beautiful, creative machine. Stephanie has molded her SB brand, now located in the very hip Woodberry neighborhood of Baltimore, into both a recognizable and widely respected entity.  Her propensity for project management and keen eye for detail are a winning combination leading to a portfolio that includes collaborations with some of the industry's most influential leaders. 

As a full-service design studio, Stephanie is deeply invested in each and every project — from planning a wedding to producing a fashion show, from styling your home to styling your brand. With three departments, and dedicated project managers, Stephanie and her team are able to offer a wide range of services while still holding on to the personal one-on-one benefit of a small business.

Standout accolades for Bradshaw include ‘Baltimore’s Best Dressed’ by Baltimore Magazine, former ‘Hospitality Professional of the Year’ by NACE, a semi-finalist on HGTV’s ‘Design Star’ (season 4), ‘Alumna of the Year’, Shippensburg University, ’30 Under 40 – Rising Young Event Professionals Worth Watching’ by Special Events Magazine, and member (and former board member) of the National Association of Catering and Events (Baltimore Chapter).

JAMIE CAMPBELL & DRURY BYNUM
Executive Producer | Director of Brand & Culture, Shine Creative

jamie-campbell.jpg

Shine Creative makes video content driven by human emotion.

Our mission is to move the needle for clients with video that connects with even the most skeptical audiences. We believe the best stories are born out of the human journey, through real-life content that instills wonder, inspires creativity and helps us better understand each other as people. We want to inspire others to dream bigger and live better so they can become the heroes of their own stories.

Lead by husband and wife team Drury Bynum and Jamie Campbell, our story is about a couple of dreamers whose marriage resembles a paste-up collage of contrasting styles with an overlapping common ground of shared taste. This is the backbone of Shine. We are Creatives. We make stuff together. Visuals drive us like a locomotive engine.

Drury, Shine’s Director, began his journey as an artist by winning the ‘Most Talented’ award in high school, which is notable because his only talent was drawing. The competition was not fierce. The following decades were an evolution of scrubbing paint on canvas, learning to design on computers, then, after buying a dusty Nikon Super 8 camera in a Bowling Green pawn shop, the pursuit of moving images. The past 20 years he’s been learning to make films that hopefully merit that prestigious award he received in high school.

Jamie wears two hats at Shine. On set she is executive producer and leads all projects from a creative perspective. At Shine she lovingly and continuously designs the brand and culture. Currently, the Shine Studio reflects her vision for ‘calm, focused, creativity’ as her design choices are inspired by recent travels and west coast dreaming. Her passion for graphic and interior design, fashion and film remains at her roots and informs not only the art direction for video, but also for the Shine brand. She has developed and produced countless video projects, large and small. Her magic is creating a cozy set and happy crew.

Using Instagram as a strong tool to bring awareness to his business and love for greenery, he was able to grow his following from 800 follows in late 2016 to 70k as of March 2018.  During that stretch of time he was featured in publications like Baltimore Magazine, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Southwest Airlines Maganize, The Washington Post Newspaper and many blogs like Domino, Apartment Therapy, Design Sponge, Esquire, Coveteur, and many others. This spring he will be featured in the interior style book, “Wonderplants 2”.
