I came to find Bluewater when I met Kristy Krueger at an AdFed Event in September of this year, where we shared a table. Kristy, according to her profile on the Bluewater People page, is a “Marketing Ninja.” (In case you were wondering, this is code for Director of Marketing.)
We ended up talking, and I shared that I was a photographer with a strong interest in graphic design. This sparked her interest and we agreed to keep in touch after I explained that I was in the process of looking for an internship before I graduate this spring.
Today, here I am, part of the creative team as a Graphic Design and Photography Intern.
I’m already so much in my first month, like:
• Navigating Prezi (a great alternative to PowerPoint) and incorporating my creative design talents
• Designing new business card options
• Learning about Bluewater, our competition — and what makes us different
• Creating images for new pages on the Bluewater website. (Coming soon!)
My first week here also happened to be Bluewater Holiday Week. There were ugly sweaters, a ping pong tournament and a potluck with Secret Santa gifts. We also were treated to massages as part of the holiday week. It was a really fun week, a great introduction to the company. Here are a few images I captured in my first week. If you want to stay updated on my future Bluewater photos, keep an eye on the Bluewater Facebook Page!
