Graphic Design advice Featuring Lynell Weeg & Tammy Larson DesignStaff

Graphic Design Advice for Students and Artists

HenkinSchultz designers Lynell Weeg and Tammy Larson were once students too. As experienced graphic artists, they have a passion for sharing design skills they’ve learned with students. We asked them to step away from their Adobe Suite for a few minutes and share thoughts for aspiring artists. Engage Both Sides of Your Brain “We are artists, yes, but in communication design, details, organization, critical thinking and logic are just as important as creativity and aesthetics,” says Creative Director Lynell Weeg. “Paying attention to details saves employers and clients time and money. It will make you a better artist and a…

The tasks largely centered on clients and vendor partners. Take a photo with Val at Missouri River Energy Services? Check. Get a printer’s proof from Denny at Sisson Printing? Check. Shuck an ear of corn in honor of Midwest Seed. Check. Say hi to Showplace Cabinetry and…

Meet Lance Rasmussen

A summer internship at HS is about a lot more than getting coffee and running errands. You get real life experience, you get valuable connections – and you also get us coffee (kidding – we all pitch in on that extremely important endeavor). In all seriousness, we’re extremely happy to have Lance Rasmussen, an SDSU graphic design major, with us this summer as our HS intern! He’s been a great asset to the team already, helping out with design projects and learning the ropes at the HS Sign Shop. Lance grew up on a farm and loves getting involved and…

HenkinSchultz Looks Ahead in 2018

A Message from Becka Burger, Partner and Director of Client Services At the beginning of 2018, or any year, it’s common for many to reflect and look backwards. Those are great sentiments and quite useful in life. But at HenkinSchultz - and in marketing strategy - if you spend too much time in “back then,” you’re already behind the competition. The way customers and your target market consume products and services is constantly changing. Remember buying MP3s? That was cute. Or when you actually had to bring a coupon to a store? Novel. Apps used to be what you shared…

HenkinSchultz has the Experience that Matters for Marketing Success

Experience Matters. When you’re a full-service creative resource with a 26-year track record of success, you learn a few things: how to react when sales are slow, how to maintain sales that are surging, when it’s time for a refresh of your logo or when it’s time for a complete re-brand of your entire company.
