Scott and Tina started Designs Unlimited from their home in 2005.

Nancy

 

Nancy Mette
Nancy graduated with a degree in Computer Science from U of I. Her & her husband Don have successfully raised 9 children. She was so good at raising kids, other people gave her their kids too. She left the child-care industry so that she could embroider, anåd no longer have to spend her days with petulant, immature, demanding humans. We showed her. Mrs. Mette has been the backbone of the Embroidery Department since she joined DUI in 2007.
 
 

 

 
Jenna Clark
Jenna joined the Designs Unlimited team at the tail end of 2015. She hails from a place called Bourbonnais (pronounced ber-BUN-ay, much like "I like may-O-nay on my sandwiches.) This is evidently somewhere in New Jersey; judging from her accent, unpronounceable surname that's a bunch of vowels with an "N" in the middle, and that she is a shorter, less calm version of Snooki. She claims to like all food, especially Chicago style pizza, Garrett’s popcorn & Portillo’s. She works upfront, greeting customers, so please don't be scared of her.

Meagan Zerrusen
Meagan was another 2015 addition to the staff and the Inside Sales fold in particular. She is a native of Teutopolis, has been married since 2012 to a Teutopolis native, and currently has two children who are presumably from here too. Meagan enjoys/loathes a love/hate relationship with carbs/treadmills. She is very envious of Felicia because she is always going somewhere
(Editor's Note: I have no idea what that means, but was asked to include it. So hopefully I didn't just activate a sleeper agent or something.)

Lisa Schabbing
Ms. Schabbing is a nerd accountant here at Designs Unlimited. Lisa is another transplant. Born in Franklin Grove, Illinois, arriving here in 2009 by way of college and Rockford, Illinois. She resides in Teutopolis with her husband Derek and their children. She enjoys friends and camping, and like any mom, her life revolves around her family.

 

 

 

 
 
Deano Tull
Lonnie Tull, Jr. - or Deano - is an experienced screen-printer who joined our staff in the summer of 2015. He is too old to skateboard, but is still too young to be aware of this. He recently learned what pepper jack cheese was, but also confused the Rolling Stones with Journey and thought Mariano Rivera was the lead singer of Metallica, which should be a sackable offense.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Alan Poe
"Poe” mans our Shipping & Receiving Department and can pinch hit when the presses are swamped. He is also pursuing a music career. It’s a bluegrass band, we think, but we're uncertain.

Katie Repking
Katie began her arduous journey in 2012. She job shadowed here as a design student wherein she was asked to slap the surface of a bucket of water 1,000 times in complete silence. She was then ordered to stand outside the front door for the next four years, contemplating what her life as a designer meant. She was forbade food, water, and love for that time until she was prepared to be molded into the creative juggernaut she is today. She has a husband and daughter, though, that she didn’t have when we first met her and we're confused as to how this happened.

 
 
 

 

Felicia Huber
Felicia joined our team in the summer of 2016, coming to us with many years of experience in the garment decoration industry. She has offered Nancy some much needed relief in the Embroidery Department and routinely assists/harasses Poe in Shipping & Receiving. Felicia is originally from Newton, and resides now in Elliotstown with husband Andy and their two sons. Against all odds, we manage everyday not to tell her “Bye” before she leaves because #mature.

 

 
 
 

 
Megan Koester
Megan joined our starting line-up in the summer of 2017 after working many years in the college ranks. She will be leading our outside sales team starting in early 2018. She is a THS Wooden Shoe and Butler Bulldog graduate. She resides in T-Town with her husband Mitch and their two children. In her spare time she enjoys family, friends and going to lots of sporting events. When at home, she & her husband tend to park on the side of the street and not on their newly poured driveway…which is odd to say the least. At 5’0 nothing, she is definitely a point guard in a town full of centers.

Katie Kuhn
Katie was added to the Graphics Dept. in May of 2017…so we now have the Katie & Katie show in our art department. So, when we call “Katie” they either both come running or neither of them respond, which is really confusing for them and us. She lives in Oconee with her son, and was destined to be a Panther, graduating from both Pana HS & EIU. She enjoys her lengthy drive to and from work every day while listening to Poe’s bluegrass cassette on her walkman.
