Betsy Brewer

For five years, Betsy Brewer balanced her job as a secretary and her after-hours passion for graphic design. When the Web moved into the fast lane, so did her design career. She became a professional designer, leaving secreterial work for good to pursue her love for design. Things got really geeky when she first visited a site designed entirely in Flash. Betsy says, "I felt like a complete idiot calling myself a web designer after seeing this masterpiece." And in a flash, her direction changed again.

Mustering all her technical and artistic capability, she taught herself Flash. Her company, B Graphic, is now two employees strong, designing Flash sites in animated glory and dazzling geeks everywhere.
