HearSay with Anne Allen

Like most people, Anne Allen wasn’t sure what she wanted to be when she grew up. Today, as Director of Client Services for HenkinSchultz, you could say she is the adult in the room when juggling her clients' expectations and the work required of the HS team. But that doesn’t stop her from bringing her signature fun, playful attitude to the office. What path did you take to enter the business of advertising and marketing?  I wasn't completely sure what I wanted to do for a career, but I knew I liked to write and I liked working with people.…

HearSay with Jason – 21 Years and Counting

If you’ve spent any time working with Jason Jellis and his fellow HS Sign Shop team members, words like humble, talented, knowledgeable and hard-working quickly come to mind. Since Jason has been an integral part of HS for the last 21 years, we asked him how he thinks about his two plus decades here.It's been 21 years at HS, do you remember exactly what you were doing 21 years ago? Wow, 21 years! Time flies when you're having fun. Twenty-one years ago I was just starting to soak in all things HS and I sat next to Lynell and Tammy…

HearSay with Kewley and Bart, HS Dog Contributors

We love to talk to our HS family about what they bring to the workplace. And since our dogs are like family, too, we thought HearSay should spend a little time talking to our couple favorite four-legged friends. So Kewley, you’ve been a regular at HS for a long time. What keeps you coming back? I’m a rare breed that I LOVE to be in meetings. And if that meeting is in the Pomp Room with a few dropped snack crumbs, all the better. What’s a typical workday look like for you? Supervising comes very naturally to me. When my…

HearSay with Jordan – Graphic Designer

To spend any time with talented HS designer Jordan Biehn is to recognize he is a man who primarily lets his work do the talking. And though of fewer words, this “stand up” guy took the time to expand on his many talents and interests. When did you first consider a career in design? I was a junior in high school and my baseball coach also taught our art class. I began drawing and he introduced me to Photoshop where I started designing posters and flyers for our school. If you had a design superpower, what would it be?  Endless…

HS Graphic Designers Share Tips on Creating Brand Guidelines

Branding is a word that gets thrown around a lot. Branding may refer to your name, reputation, marketing executions, appearance and more. While all these things are part of your brand, the most instantly recognizable part is how you represent yourself in design - particularly your logo and mark. But no design or new branding considerations should ever take place without understanding the overall marketing strategy required for that particular client. Who is the target? When and how is the target exposed to the brand? What mediums will be most used? What impressions do we want a viewer to walk…

HearSay with Emily – Digital Marketing Director

The field of digital marketing is expansive and always changing, and when we need to know what’s next for our industry, we turn to our fearless digital marketing director, Emily Sorenson. She never backs down from a challenge (especially when it comes to cooking competitions at work), so we presented her with some hard-hitting questions to uncover more about her dynamic role at HS. Why do you like working in digital marketing? Oh goodness - that is a hard question to answer. I like to cook - so let’s think of it a little like planning a dinner. My favorite…

HearSay with Tammy - Graphic DesignerStaff

HearSay with Tammy – Graphic Designer

What design challenges do you welcome or enjoy? I think one of the challenges that brings me the most satisfaction is creating something awesome when there is minimal content or direction from our clients. Sometimes our clients just don’t know what they want or can’t put it into words, and, more often than not, we nail it! But sometimes we get, “That’s not even close…by a longshot!” (Emphasized by Tammy’s famous laugh) Besides design itself, what are some special skills you bring to your work? I would have to say…proudly…that I’ve been known as “the office physician.” This is probably…

HearSay with Bree – Account Coordinator

Bree LeBrun knows very well that Account Coordinator is a busy and important position. We talked with Bree about how she got into the industry and what she is doing to further her education and profession - while balancing some down time and trying new things. Tell us about your school and career path that lead you into advertising? For the first three years of my college career I was undecided on what I wanted to do. The only thing I was sure of was that I wanted a job where everyday was different and where I was able to…

HearSay with Angela

HS media coordinator Angela Fuhr knows a lot about coordination. She’s juggled her many interests for years. And those interests led her to a career in marketing, media and digital. HS sat down with Angela to learn a little more about her journey to here. What did you study and what led you into your role in this business? I majored in public relations with minors in marketing, digital & social media management, and a certificate in graphic design. I always had a passion for English and writing throughout high school, but majoring in English never appealed to me… being…
