:: eeko studio Nintern 2013: Barb “Babs” Krueger ::


Meet one of eeko studio/CO+HOOTS’ 2013 Ninterns (ninja interns, duh) … Barb Krueger (no relation)! Read and revel in the epicness. (That’s a word.)

Name: Barb Krueger

Nickname: Babs

Age: 23

Title: Intern

Why did you want to work at CO+HOOTS and eeko studio?
I chose CO+HOOTS and eeko studio because of their sense of community. I find that Phoenix has a lot of cool opportunities and fun events going on, but it’s not always showcased. CO+HOOTS shows these opportunities to Phoenix and then some. I chose eeko specifically because of the awesome design work they do.

What are you studying at ASU? Why did you choose that path?
I am majoring in Visual Communication Design and minoring in Women’s Studies. When I was 15 my art teacher gave me a sharpie and told me to design something. I couldn’t put the sharpie down and ended up with crazy detailed drawings. I knew at that point that I needed to do something artistic as a career. I stumbled upon design when I was 20 and found that graphic design challenged me in ways that studio art couldn’t. While graphic design satisfies my creative mind, women’s studies challenges my intellectual mind.

CO+HOOTS members and eeko studio may be able to help you as well … What are your own personal hopes and dreams?
My ultimate goal and dream is to learn and grow as a designer. I think the design process really grasps the concept of change which allows for personal growth. In the future I would like to acquire a masters degree and teach graphic design.

If you had 100 billion dollars, you would …
I would develop a group to benefit women and children around the world. 100 billion dollars is too much money for one person to own and I think it would stress me out.

What should the CO+HOOTS community know about you?
I am a very passionate person who is always up for a challenge. I thoroughly enjoy thinking about how to make improvements and making the impossible possible.

What is that one big project you’d like to do? In CO+HOOTS/for eeko studio or out of CO+HOOTS/not for eeko studio?
I would love to dabble in some front end web development. I know the basics of web development, but I want to be a better web designer.

What is one thing people don’t know about you?
I am genuinely a quiet and reserved person, but once I break out of my shell you can’t shut me up.

Why are you so awesome?
I am awesome because I love crafting and cats. I am like a 70 year old grandma stuck in a 23 year old body.

Who’s more awesome … Jenny? Or Odeen?
Jenny is more awesome because Odeen makes fun of the fact that I don’t know how to turn technology on and off  :)
