Meet Karen Nguyen (pronounced “win” — hence the clever headline), the new Banowetz + Company intern who joined us at the end of May. The design team looked at a lot of resumes and books (that’s creative lingo for “portfolios”) before offering her the position. Karen brings smart ideas and design skills to Banowetz, and has already been recognized in several awards shows for her creative ability. Currently finishing up a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Arlington, she will be with us for the summer and will have the opportunity to participate on various projects while shadowing our designers throughout the day. When Karen is not honing her design skills, she is a wife to Thong (pronounced “tong”), a mother to Colette, a Tetris addict, an aspiring cook and a wannabe traveler. We’re excited to have her on board, and hope you will have the chance to get to know her during her time with us.
