Rockstar of the Quarter: Timothy Porter

Rockstar of the Quarter: Timothy Porter

And Creative Sign Rockstar of the Quarter goes to…. Timothy Porter!


Position:  Graphic Designer

Trait of Extreme Awesomeness:  Equality

What his co-workers have said about him:  “Timothy always treats everyone with respect and expects no favoritism.  He has taken on challenges…and has handled it like a champion.”


“He speaks the truth, plays by the rules, listens with an open mind, and doesn’t play favorites.”


A graduate of NWTC, Timothy began his Creative Sign career as a Production Setup Artist in July of 2019 and quickly showed his aptitude for creative, thorough, and efficient design proofs, becoming a full-time Graphic Designer 6 months later.  Since taking on that role, Timothy has consistently risen to challenges in ever larger and more complex projects, most recently taking on large-scale ADA packages for some of Creative Sign’s biggest clients.


Congrats, Timothy!  Thank you for all your hard work!

Rockstar of the Quarter:  Tracy Burkel

Rockstar of the Quarter: Tracy Burkel

And Creative Sign Rockstar of the Quarter goes to…. Tracy Burkel!

Position:  Senior Project Manager

Trait of Extreme Awesomeness:  Identity

What her co-worker has said about her:  “Tracy is truly a joy to be around and do work for.  Her always appreciative words make me want to strive to do better whenever I am working with her.  She’s professional, thorough and always willing to answer questions.”


Tracy joined the Creative Sign team in May of 2016 when Creative Sign was in a time of growth and transition.  We were in the midst of expanding our building and staff to accommodate our large increase in customers and projects.  Tracy’s ability to balance many duties and sign packages at once made her an immediate help in managing ADA jobs in that expanding department.  As the ADA Department grew (largely due to Tracy’s awesome customer service and methodical handling of projects), Tracy was able to bring new and exciting prospects to Creative Sign.  Her hard work, extremely friendly personality, and outstanding organization even landed her on Creative Sign’s Wall of Fame in 2019 and 2020 for sales over $500k and $750k.


Tracy is fearless in tackling any project and dedicated to giving our customers the best in quality and service.  For these reasons, Tracy is the perfect Creative Sign teammate to represent the trait of Identity.  She is a Creative Sign ambassador.


Congrats, Tracy!  Like your fellow Sign Nerd said, “Tracy is long overdue for the Rockstar Award!!!”

What her co-workers have said about her:  “Stephanie goes above and beyond for this team.”

Congrats, Stephanie!  Thank you for all your hard work!

Helping Hunter’s New Beginnings

Helping Hunter’s New Beginnings

A BIG thank you to all the Creative Sign teammates, friends, and family who purchased ornaments for #GivingTuesday!
Creative Sign produced clear acrylic ornaments with a choice of three different etched phrases:  “I Survived 2020,”  “Let It Snow,” and “Sign Nerd.”  100% of the proceeds went to Hunter’s New Beginnings Inc, a local charity, to help assist people, especially the youth, that are struggling with emotional issues.
Though the goal $500, Creative Sign raised more than double that goal!  $1083 went to Hunter’s New Beginnings, along with some custom ornaments featuring their new logo, which Creative Sign designed free of charge.

Happily Ever After Animal Shelter Sign Dedication

Happily Ever After Animal Shelter Sign Dedication

We are proud to be apart of so many great things that happen at animal shelters Happily Ever After (HEA). We previously donated signage at their Green Bay location, and are honored to have been apart of another donation at their Clintonville location. Their newest signage was donated by our very own Sign Consultant Kelli Lax, on behalf of Creative Sign Company, to honor volunteer Dean Ekberg as he battles stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Dean is in our thoughts as he undergoes more treatment for his cancer, but his legacy is now available for all to see who visit Happily Ever After.
