Barb Ackemann, Web Developer

Founder of Iris Lines Designs, Barb wrote her first computer programs by making holes in cardboard punch cards in the 1970s. She spent twenty-eight years as a classroom teacher, librarian and computer maven in educational settings, and earned her Masters in Internet Technologies from Marlboro College Graduate School in 2006.

Barb’s approach to web design combines art, craft, strategic organization, and structural design – all of which reflect her delight in finding the most elegant solution to any given puzzle. Her skill in this is not limited to dealing with computers and websites. She is a master at dealing with sometimes obstreperous musicians and guitar makers. Barb is based in Brattleboro, VT.
