Siekmann will become the primary designer of Rural Route, the Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s member magazine. Other responsibilities include the design of web and print materials.
“The Rural Route has been nationally recognized by our peers, but most importantly is respected by its readers. It is an honor to help bring it to life for our members,” Siekmann said.
“Lynn’s strong graphic design skills and farm background make her uniquely qualified to help us convey the Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s message,” said Casey Langan, Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Executive Director of Public Relations and Rural Route editor.
Siekmann, who lives in Middleton, grew up on a beef and crop farm near Plymouth in Sheboygan County. She has a bachelor’s degree in animal science from UW-Madison and an associate’s degree of applied arts in graphic design and illustration from Madison College.
Siekmann joined the Wisconsin Farm Bureau staff in May of 2011.
