Get to know Kate Thomfohrda…

What is your role at Market Crafters?
Graphic Designer

What kind of phone was your first cell phone?
Nokia 7250 – not quite the brick, but could survive most things. Not to brag or anything, but I had The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven” as my ringtone. Pretty sure my mom had to pay $2.00 for that. Worth it!

What’s the most random thing you’ve watched all the way through on Netflix (or any show)?
I will watch anything with a wizard. With that said, I love the campy Legend of the Seeker. The acting? questionable. The plot? kind of there, I guess. The special effects? don’t get me started. It sure is fun though.

What has been your coolest experience in your career thus far?
In my previous life (before my career change), I managed a coffee shop. One time, Nick Offerman came in and ordered a black coffee and two eggs over easy. I didn’t know it was him at first because he shaved his mustache, but then he said “Thank you, kindly.” That’s when I knew. I spent the rest of his visit trying to convince my boss it was him and by the time she was on board, he left. We tried to chase him down and give him some free stuff, but he was gone. Also, one time when I wasn’t there, Joe Keery (Steve from Stranger Things) came in- he got the free stuff.

What is your favorite advertisement of all time?
I will forever be obsessed with this jingle for Beef-a-Roo (it’s a Rockford fast food chain). It goes “We got so hungry last night, I was cryin’. We had to get some cheddar fries (from Beef-a-Roo)”. I think I’ve eaten at Beef-a-Roo once.
