What’s a “Pier Light”? Isn’t it a “Lighthouse”?

Contrary to popular belief, a “lighthouse” technically has to have a house attached to the tower which houses the lantern that aids navigation for vessels on the lake. Since the lights in Milwaukee & Kenosha, Wisconsin don’t have houses attached to them, and they’re on a pier instead of land, they’re considered pier lights instead of lighthouses. Since we’re based somewhere in the middle of these two sister lights, we thought it would make a great name to honor those iconic local landmarks.

VisitKenosha.com states: “Located at Simmons Island Beach, 50th St. and Lake Michigan, the Kenosha North Pier Light was built in 1906 and stands 50 feet tall. It is privately owned, but still serves as the active lighthouse for the Kenosha harbor.”

According to VisitMilwaukee.org“Established in 1872, the Milwaukee Pierhead Light is a sister light to the Kenosha North Pier Light. It is located where the Milwaukee River flows out into Lake Michigan, marking the mouth of the river to traveling ships.”

So now you know! You learn something new every day, right?

Here are some great feedback comments from our fabulous clients!

Julie has been doing graphic design work and photo editing for my engineering business for many years. I’ve come to rely on her for quick thinking, ability to take charge of a project when you’re not quite sure what you want, willingness to be told “that’s not really what I wanted yet” (this is hard to find!), and her flexibility in the creative process. As a result, my business has reaped the rewards of many compliments on our ads, print material, and promotional items like our very popular series of tees! She’s also created work a number of age groups have liked and appreciated, from Millennials to Boomers. Julie always puts her heart and soul into the work she does, so I highly suggest her for your next project!

Julie did a great job and was very responsive, she actually did more work than I hired her for. I would highly suggest using Julie.

Julie consistently delivers conceptual work, a great understanding of deadline’s pressures, and a sincerely ever-pleasurable demeanor. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Julie for any client needing graphic design services with my highest regards.

Julie is an exceptional production artist with a strong eye for design. In her assessment, she demonstrated exceptional software skills in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and is committed to her own professional development. She is a quick learner, very funny and personable, and never shies away from the chance to conquer challenging or complex production projects. She’s enthusiastic about her work, pleasant and dedicated. We’ve enjoyed having her on the C2 Staffing team.

I would highly recommend Julie for your next project. Julie is superb at what she does and she pulled off the impossible. She designed my cookbook from start to finish in 10 days, even staying up through the night to get this book to the printer on time. And at the end of this project I was left with a beautiful cookbook!!! Julie is creative and detail oriented. She is easy to work with and extremely flexible. Not to mention the fact that she is just a very nice person. If you are looking for the right graphic artist for your next design project, you have got to hire Julie Arnold!
