Intern Kirsten’s Introduction
Pop quiz. Solve for x.
(Loving people + talented artists + way cool signage) x Sandy’s Donuts = x
If you guessed x = Office Sign Company, you were right!
Okay, so we don’t get donuts every day at work.
That would get old- We rotate with Boppa’s Bagels and Dairy Queen Dilly Bars.
8:00 AM on this beautiful Tuesday morning marked my second week as the PR/Marketing Intern here at Office Sign Company.
Why OSC? The Office Sign Company was the closest I could get to working for The Office, otherwise known as the best series to grace television.
In reality, I’m just in it for those Sandy’s donuts. 🙂
As a recent junior at Concordia College, I couldn’t have asked for a more a-maize-ing home away from home that continually challenges and inspires me. Shout out to the Comm Dept!
Over the course of my two years here, I’ve fallen in love with Fargo-Moorhead. The multitude of coffee shops sprinkled across Downtown Fargo provide the perfect oases to feed my affinity for great coffee, catch up with a friend or three, and maybe cram in some last minute studying. (If any of my professors are reading this- it wasn’t for your class!) If I’m not spending money I don’t have buying coffee, I’m biking along the Red River, finding things I don’t need at thrift stores, or playing cards in Gooseberry Park.
I’ve also been fortunate to find a family at Unseen, a local nonprofit organization fighting human trafficking, caring for orphans, and ending cycles of poverty. Their amazing work has sparked and fueled a passion within my own heart.
Or, of course, you can find me watching The Office.
I’m wonderfully lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of something as cool as Office Sign Company. After these ten days, I can tell you they’re creating much more than beautiful signage here at 310 NP Fargo. But when they do make signs, I can tell you about:
·The unfiltered creativity in each new design, and how cool it is to witness as it is transformed from the screen to your hands.
·The amount of care that goes into every single vinyl covering over the acrylic name tag you wear on your shirt every morning.
·The engraved two-tone wood sign hanging on your wall, directing your clients, was made and then remade until our specialists felt it was at the best state it could be.
·The focused attention to detail that is paid to every product as it passes through the watchful eyes of our quality care department.
·The number of times your order was checked, rechecked, and then checked again to make sure they got it right the first time.
My relationship with the vast world of all things signs has just begun and I have a lot to learn.
I think I found a pretty swell place to do just that.
