Before working at ASI, what was the most unusal or interesting job you've ever had?   I had a summer job at a vineyard taking care of the vines, picking grapes, and working the grounds.  I learned so much and found it so enjoyable getting to work outside every day.When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?     I have recently started gardening!  My fiance and I bought our first home last year, so I am going to take this summer to work in our yard and learn more about how to not kill every plant I come in contact with.What is the one TV show you can rewatch endlessly? New Girl, all day!       Who would you most like to swap places with for a…

This is usually the part of the article where we gush about our featured employees.  However, those are generally written by me, and as self-aggrandizing as marketers can be (poppycock of course), I just can't bring myself to do it!  So here are some random facts about me that you just may not have known... ENJOY! 1. What did you want to be when you were a kid?  An elephant!  I SO wanted to be an elephant.  Then a friend told me that I couldn't be an elephant, only an elephant trainer, and I was devastated.2. Where'd you grow up?  School?  I was born in Montana and grew up in North Dakota.  I still consider Montana my 'home state'. even though I lived there for less than four years.  We still…

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...

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 joy…

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…
