Tim Bauman / Owner
As a kid who was great at drawing and painting but cut from blue collar, working class roots in Chicago, IL, the sign trade was a natural entry point into a creative career after high school. Tim started his sign career in Chicago, IL in January of 1980 as an apprentice for Foster and Kleiser, the world’s largest outdoor advertising company. He worked under the tutelage of some of the area’s great local ‘Wall Dog” sign painters, while learning the traditional ways of hand painted signs. After attending Washburne Trade School from 1980-1985 and becoming a journeyman, Tim worked at several prominent sign companies in Chicago before starting his own company in Lincoln Park named Image DeSIGNS which specialized in custom hand painted signs.
Loving the outdoors and open spaces of the West, Tim and his lifelong mate Emily moved to Portland, OR in 1989. The move to Portland opened up opportunities for Tim beyond traditional sign painting where he further expanded his skill sets into computer aided graphic design and production techniques. He worked for several graphic design/exhibit firms including Mayer-Reed, where he collaborated on many important projects, including The Underground Railroad Museum in Ohio, Safeco Insurance Campus in Washington State, and helped design and implement the traveler aiding, Transit Tracker system for the City of Portland light rail system, which is successfully in full use on multiple lines there. Seeking a change of pace and a break from the bleak weather, Tim and Emily moved to Santa Fe, NM in 2004 and created Hacienda Las Barrancas Bed & Breakfast on the outskirts of town in a sprawling adobe hacienda on 4.3 acres of land they purchased. After 8 successful years as innkeepers but struggling through the Great Recession, both Tim and Emily wanted to pursue their artistic impulses so they closed the B&B and Tim began working at Pronto Signs in Santa Fe as a sign design/production artist. Feeling the entrepreneurial itch again, they saw a sign business for sale in Atascadero, CA. and inquired about purchasing it. The rest of the story brings us to the here and now.
Tim offers his 37+ years of sign, design and business experience as co-owner of All Signs and Graphics. Calling Atascadero home with Emily and their dog Lola, he also serves on the board of the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce, enjoys local craft beer, the coast and is getting much better at Disc Golf.
Often the first voice you’ll hear when you call the shop, Emily ensures that things run smoothly, your order is correct and she stays on top of production and scheduling tasks. In 2016, she attended Roland’s ‘Born to Wrap’ intensive vehicle wrapping workshop with a generous scholarship from The Atascadero Women In Business. These added skills give us three well qualified sets of hands able to install any vehicle graphics project thrown at us. She is also the steady hand behind much of our painted three dimensional sign work. Her diverse contributions to the company are invaluable.
