I’m sure many of you reading this today work for companies where there’s an Employee Recognition Program, and we here at KegWorks are no different (at least in this way). Each month, someone from KegWorks is acknowledged for their hard work with the Employee of the Month Award. They get a fancy plaque, our Rock of Awesomeness (seen below), as well as lunch on the owners and a half-day off. It’s pretty fun, and it’s a well-respected honor around the office.
Because we often get asked about the people behind the business, we figured it would be fun to profile each of the recipients on a monthly basis, and so today, we’re starting with October’s winner, Adam Bauer, our Senior Graphic Designer. If you read our emails, spend time on our website, or check out any of our print ads, then you’ve seen a lot of Adam’s work.
Learn a little more about him in our conversation below. (Sorry, ladies – he’s not single.)
Caleb: In a couple of sentences, explain what you do here at KegWorks?

Adam: The people I work with. Without a doubt. Never a dull moment here.

Adam: Spiegelau Craft Beer Tasting Kit, I’ve become a believer.
Caleb: What were you most excited about when you started working at KegWorks?

Caleb: What do you like most about working in Marketing and/or design?
Adam: I enjoy the “process” of creating cohesive messaging – from concept to completion.

Caleb: What are your top three favorite movies?
Adam: Star Wars Episode V: Empire Strikes Back, Weird Science, and Around the Fire.
Caleb: Favorite band at the moment?

Caleb: What’s your favorite local brewery?
