Tim Bauman’s roots are in the fertile sign design soil of the Chicago area, where he served a union apprenticeship at the legendary Foster & Kleiser outdoor advertising company. He attended the union sign school, Washburn Trade School, in the same program that trained Bob Behounek and many other young Chicagoland sign painters who went on to inspire and influence the trade.
