Marci Tousey, partner & business manager
Marci Tousey is the President and Bookkeeper for Open Mind Studios. She has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from central Michigan University and a Masters in Somatic Psychology from Naropa University. Marci is also the Owner and Studio Director of YogaLoft.
Shannon Muench, creative partner
Born and raised along the Mississippi River, fellow Wisconsin native Shannon Muench (say Minnick) joined Open Mind Studios in May 2007. Along with her design, typography and problem-solving skills, Shannon brings a healthy dose of sarcasm to the office daily.
Shannon’s creative aspirations landed her at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where she received a BFA in Graphic Design. After cutting her teeth as a young designer laying out product catalogs for NASCAR, NBA, MLB and the NFL for WinCraft, Inc. in Winona, Minnesota, Shannon made the move to Sheboygan to join Open Mind Studios.
Shannon lives in the city and is active in the community. She is an avid volleyball player and quilter, enjoys swimming, triathlon, and board games. Her goals include learning how to kiteboard, staying active and learning more about web and UX design.
Jodi Wegner, designer
Jodi grew up in the small town of Baxter in the heart of Minnesota. Upon graduating from high school she found a passion for design and decided to make a career out of it. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout and obtained a BFA in Graphic Design. This led her to Minneapolis, MN where she worked as a professional designer at Initio Advertising.
Recently married, her husband got a job in the Sheboygan area. Following a move to Sheboygan she is now our newest designer at Open Mind Studios. She has said, “I love design because it allows me to make a difference in someone’s life or business by creating design solutions that bring character and life into each project. Each unique experience builds on the next and helps me to become a better designer.”
She enjoys fishing on the great lakes and exploring local recreational areas. She also loves to be on the water as much as possible boating, wakeboarding and waterskiing. She hopes to get more into the Great Lakes surf scene and try kiteboarding.
Troy Tousey, founder (1963-2012)
Troy was the founder of Open Mind Studios which he started in 1989 in Vail, Colorado. The birth of twins in 2001 got he and his wife, Marci, thinking of getting back to their midwestern roots. A move to Sheboygan, Wisconsin soon followed. And in 2002, the current incarnation of Open Mind Studios began.
Troy loved the outdoors and was an avid snowboarder when in Colorado. His summers were spent putting thousands of miles on his bicycle. On a summer evening, Troy enjoyed hosting house concerts in his backyard surrounded by his Michigan Avenue friends and neighbors. He took great pride in cheering on his twins at their first triathalon and taking his son Tate to Green Bay Packer Games. Troy was a passionate member and leader in the Sheboygan Area School District's charter school system.
Troy passed on in 2012. His enthusiasm for good design, great music, and snarky sarcasm are deeply missed. An avid musicologist, check out this list of his Top Fifteen albums he compiled.
