Employed: 6/06 to present
Cathy Skoglund joined the ASU Print and Imaging Lab in June 2006 and has since become a vital part of the ASU Enterprise Marketing Hub's award-winning marketing communications materials production. In 2015, with the inclusion of the Print and Imaging Lab as a Hub entity, Skoglund has played the lead role in the successful promotion of the lab's services to ASU constituencies. The lab — an ASU Fulton Schools of Engineering graphic information technology-degree (GIT) program laboratory — is home to more than 25 GIT students who are involved in every aspect of the day-to-day operation of the lab and the design, production and delivery of nationally and industry-recognized print, digital, web-to-print and large-format materials. As the Senior Director, Skoglund has advanced the lab as a self-funded, hands-on educational experience for ASU students, staff and faculty, delivering a product that meets the demands of a wide range of clients inside and outside the university.
Prior to joining the Print and Imaging Lab, Skoglund worked closely with a variety of companies — including Sequel (a division of Heritage Graphics), One Source and R and R Images — in the transition to successful digital operations. Her business success and expertise in the graphic arts field have combined to position her as a sought-after keynote and panel participant at industry conferences at home and abroad. She is a recipient of the prestigious Z.A. Prust Industry Achievement Award for her contributions to the graphic arts industry and her support of educational programs within the community as they relate to graphic arts.
Skoglund received her Bachelor of Science and Technology degree with an emphasis in graphic communications from ASU. She lives with her husband Jim, three dogs, two goats and lots of chickens in nearby Queen Creek. A grandmother of four, she also can be found on an off day working her husband's food truck, Jimbo's Wing'n it.
