The title says it all. Those are the three things that roll around in the mind of our former intern turned full-fledged ZURBian. It's all he thinks about. After all, aren't those the only things that matter in life? We think so, which is why we asked him to come back. OK, that wasn't the only reason. He's a really talented fella.
So it's our pleasure to introduce you to …
Geoff Kimball, Designer
We've missed Geoff since his internship ended last year, so it's nice to have him back! It's also nice to have another Hoosier in 'da house.
Raised in the quiet suburbs of Fisher, Indiana, Geoff fell in love with technology at an early age — way back in the dark days of dial-up modems. His love grew to include design while studying at Ball State's Emerging Technologies department.
As he told us:
I developed a fascination with how people interact with technology and incorporate it into their lives. By the time I graduated high school, I knew design was in my future.
He even got to tinker on websites and apps for the university, Ball State's first National Science Foundation grant and even the Indiana state government. So you could say, he got a little experience before coming to ZURB as a summer intern.
From Intern to ZURBian
When it came to applying for a ZURB internship, Geoff didn't just send his resume. He actually built a website to show us why he was the right guy for the job! Unfortunately, the site is no longer up. But trust us, it was impressive and got him the gig.
As an intern, Geoff didn't fetch coffee and answer phones. Nope, we put him to work, tasking him with updating our oldest property — the Playground. It was built on our old code, CSS Grid Builder, which you can consider to be Foundation's ancestor. He took that gnarly code and updated the entire Playground to be responsive. Quite a feat!
He also took a casual idea mentioned in a meeting and, a few days later, came back with a completely new product, Wrangle, which let's you ... wait for it ... wrangle up images using your fingers.
So you can see why we brought Geoff back on board as a full-fledged ZURBian! Now everyone please welcome Geoff!
