Meet the Art Department


Ellie Johnson | Company Introductions | November 1, 2022

The blog this week is all about getting to know the art department at Custom Graphics! Both Kami and Bill work hand-in-hand to create the masterpieces you see here.

Evidently, the art department team is the first step in the process of production. They take the information that the sales team gathers and create proofs. Within these proofs, every detail is important in accurately supporting the customer’s vision.

While designing vehicle graphics, wraps, interior or exterior signage, banners, wall graphics or wall designs, our art department works closely with the sales department to create a design that effectively communicates and promotes the customer’s brand.

Once the proof is approved, it is the art department’s responsibility to create production artwork for the digital printers, silk-screeners, vinyl and die-cutters.

Kami and Jason

Kami Brennan

Kami grew up in Hawley, Minnesota. She is the youngest of three, with an older brother and sister. When looking back on her childhood, Kami has fond memories of spending her summers with her grandparents, siblings and cousins at their lake cabin on Little Pelican Lake. Undoubtedly the best childhood ever! Kami also prides herself on being her nieces and nephew’s favorite aunt. In Kami’s free time, she enjoys spending time with her dogs Penny and Bernadette in addition to home decorating, reading and anything crafty!

Bill Kensok

Art Director

Bill grew up in the Wheatland, ND area and is 10th of 11 children in his family. Bill graduated from Central Cass High School and attended Minnesota State Moorhead, majoring in advertising and graphic communications. Bill’s first career was as a videographer and video editor. He later moved into graphic design and designed trade show displays. Bill and his beloved wife Amy have now been married for 31 years and have two sons. Ben is a senior who attends the University of Brandon in Canada and Adam is a sophomore at MSUM. In Bill’s free time, he enjoys golfing. In the summer, Bill golfs at least once a week and is always itching to get out there when spring rolls around. Besides golf, Bill enjoys watching sports, especially the local professional teams.

One of your favorite movies as a child?

  • Star Wars - Bill owned almost every action figure and spaceship they ever made.

Favorite genre of music?

  • Since Bill grew up in such a large family, he was exposed to all different genres of music. His father, a WW2 veteran, listened to artists such as Nat King Cole, Glen Miller’s Orchestra and Dean Martin. Bill’s older siblings prefer music that was popular in the 60s and 70s and Bill grew up in the 80s which lead to him haccing appreciation for most of those genres (as long as it's not hip hop or rap).

Favorite local restaurant?

  • Duane’s House of Pizza. Bill has been going there since he was a kid! Call it nostalgia but Bill hasn’t found better pizza than Duane’s.

Fun Fact:

Bill is intensely afraid of birds, and has been struck in the head by six birds in the course of his life. He is unsure if they can detect his fear or if it is due to him being tall.
