We love Sheboygan Falls!  It is our hometown, after all.  And it has a fascinating historic heritage surrounded by beautiful Wisconsin scenery!  So, it only made sense for our next customer spotlight to feature a unique duo who also calls Sheboygan Falls their home!  Our relationship with these two businesses blossomed in 2016 when they called on us to create their new logos and redesign their websites.  These projects were done simultaneously, resulting in similar layouts to emphasize unity within the city.   Introducing... The City of Sheboygan Falls/Utilities and the City of Sheboygan Falls Police Department! City of Sheboygan Falls/UtilitiesThe City of Sheboygan Falls is located within Sheboygan County, WI, home to approximately 8,00 citizens with a diverse business and residential community.City officials approached ASI looking for a website redesign…

Warm Welcome to Noelle

Warm Welcome to Noelle

Spotlights
Hello!  My name is Noelle Timler and I am a Graphic and Web Designer from Sheboygan, WI.  I recently graduated from the Graphic and Web Design program at Lakeshore Technical College and had the honor of working for small business owners around the Sheboygan County area.  I was able to create websites, logos, and print materials for these clients that helped them gain more confidence as business owners and in return gave me valuable experience in the world of graphic design. During high school, I struggled to find passions that could be turned into a career.  I ended up graduating from Sheboygan South and going to a UW extension while I was undecided.  I struggled for over a year trying to figure out a career goal that would bring me…

Featured Customer: NonProfits Insurance Alliance

Spotlights
For the past 25 years, ASI has found a bit of a niche working with insurance companies.  We know insurance, we speak insurance, we understand insurance, and so we're able to more easily jump in and help with all sides of keeping an insurance company's IT systems running.  We've been doing it for so long that we can safely tell you that every insurance company is a little unique.  We know, all insurance companies can sometimes get lumped into one bucket, but different companies offer different plans, coverages, and special endorsements.  However, we are lucky enough to work with a company that demonstrates this uniqueness profoundly; Nonprofits Insurance Alliance. What Makes NonProfits So Unique? Uh-huh, they already sound interesting – but just wait.  Not only do they exclusively insure nonprofit…

Hi there!  My name is Keith Yonan, and I've been an IT professional for the past 30+ years.  I started my career as a mainframe COBOL developer, and over the years, I've been able to experience and learn a little bit of every new piece of technology that was developed and thrown in front of me.  To help further my career as it went on, I also became involved with the management side of IT development teams, Computer Operations Support, and Project Management.  And sometimes that pushes you away from the actual development side of IT.  A short while ago, I thought I was ready to leave the world of IT and settle into some greener pastures.  (Can you tell already that I might have a golfing addition?)But as time…
