Kristen Aumann celebrates 15 years in graphic design

MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) — Kristen Aumann celebrates 15 years at Premier Printing on April 16. The native Loyal has always been passionate about art, so pursuing a career in graphic design was the perfect fit.

“I loved art. I took every possible art class in school,” she said. “We had a really good counselor in high school and when I sat down with him my senior year, I didn’t even know graphics existed on a computer. Loyal is a small town, so you don’t always realize what there is over there. Since then, I like the graphic design!

Aumann’s guidance counselor told her about a graphic communications program at Northcentral Technical College, which she took while working at Office Max in their digital department.

After graduating, one of the owners of Premier Printing called Aumann to find out if she would accept an interview for a new position as a graphic designer. Fifteen years later, she still loves it.

“I really appreciate the people I work with. We all get along like a family. It’s a small business, so you have to like the people you work with,” she said. “I also like the fact that I’m constantly learning. There are a lot of new technologies coming. People bring what they want for a design and you want to make the customer happy. Sometimes it’s learning how a different program works or watching videos on how to do certain things. Wherever they find it, it is possible to do so.

“We are so lucky to have Kristen and her talents in the Premier team,” said co-owner Lindsey Rasmussen. “She’s great at helping turn a client’s vision into reality – and she’s just an awesome person overall.”

Having been in the business for so long, Aumann has done just about every aspect of the job – from design to screen printing to vinyl to assembly. Her favorite part is seeing her designs in the community, especially in her hometown of Loyal.

“Being able to work for Loyal Athletics has been really fun for me. Being able to do the designs for people I know really well is great,” she said. “It’s also great to see my designs there It’s actually getting even more fun because my kids are starting to be a part of it all.

Aumann is excited to see what the next 15 years will bring and encourages anyone interested in a rewarding design career to consider a small business.

“I can’t wait to discover the new things that I will be able to learn. I’m interested to see what we’re going to do to make customers happy,” she said. “Working for a small business is a great place to start. You are not working with hundreds of people and everyone is ready to help each other.
