Having studied science and fine art, Ewa found a perfect convergence of the two in the field of design. With a background in photography, Ewa began her career as a retoucher before transitioning into design. She spent several years as an in-house designer at Christie’s auction house creating and art directing high-end print collateral and advertising campaigns. As a freelancer, she worked with a variety of clients on branding and design initiatives. At Trasaterra she specializes in user experience and design, and has focused on shaping the visual voice of clients. She graduated summa cum laude from Salve Regina University with degrees in Art and Chemistry, and magna cum laude from SUNY/FIT with a degree in Communication Design.
When not in front of the computer she flexes her creative muscle painting. Ewa has lived in three countries. She loves to travel and photograph the places she visits.
Jason got his creative start drawing and writing comics before studying fine art as a youth. He holds a BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art where he studied graphic design, painting and drawing. Jason has been designing and creating websites, brand identities and campaigns since 2000. He’s designed and art directed for numerous clients and employers across various industries including The New York Times, Diane Von Furstenberg and JWT. At Trasaterra he specializes in art direction and web development, and focuses on creating effective digital strategies for clients.
These days it’s very rare to find Jason away from a web-connected device. When he’s not creating websites he finds time to blog and write and produce songs. He’s also traveled the globe with Ewa.

We first coined the name Trasaterra for our travelogue. To us it sounds both familiar and unique, and is evocative of traversing the world. Now we use the name for our design partnership. We believe great design requires an expanded and inquisitive worldview. Welcome!
