THANK YOU FOR VISITING
I am a user experience (UX) leader specializing in design systems based in Colorado. I spend my time building and managing design systems that help UX designers, developers, and product managers to craft consistent digital experiences, while saving companies millions of dollars by reducing duplicate design and development effort. For over 20 years, I have been leading cross-functional teams, delivering innovative products and highly functional, user-friendly interfaces, and evangelizing on behalf of the user. Currently, I work at Trimble managing Modus Design System, and I’m responsible for improving UX quality, cohesiveness, and efficiency of over 600 products worldwide.
When I’m not advocating for usability or building design systems, you can find me in the mountains rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, skiing, and mountaineering.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ME
Marita Franzke, PhD
DIRECTOR OF USER EXPERIENCE AT TRIMBLE
I hired Ewa to build out and manage a nascent design system at Trimble, and I could not have made a better decision. In only three years, she has turned a fledgling beta version of our Modus design system, which initially included foundations and a few components into a living, growing, community-sourced system. Modus now spans several platforms (mobile, web, in-field, XR) through a well-maintained, growing Figma component library.
Ewa has tirelessly and skillfully engaged the UX and engineering communities at Trimble to become efficient and proud contributors, consumers, and co-advocates for the system. She has designed and manages a website and communication channels that hold all of this together, and she is a fierce and convincing advocate for the system across disciplines and management levels. She has build out the design system as an organization and a movement.
SOFTWARE ARCHITECT AT TRIMBLE
Ewa demonstrates enthusiasm, leadership and clarity of communication in every aspect of her work. Her contagious commitment to excellence elevates and invigorates everyone she interacts with. Passionate about quality, consistency and accessibility in user experiences, she works tirelessly on behalf of customers and colleagues to ensure the delivery of powerful and valuable user experiences. I very much appreciate how Ewa applies her broad experience and depth of systems thinking to every aspect of her work. She also consistently demonstrates an ability to bring together various stakeholders across the organization to collaborate on initiatives that benefit the entire company. I can’t recommend her highly enough as a leader in user experience specifically, and systems thinking generally.
UX MANAGER AT TRIMBLE
Ewa is a highly talented Design Systems Manager at Trimble who cares deeply about her team and the people she works with. Ewa has the ability to transform an entire design ecosystem and to really lead with exceptional UX skills. She has always gone the extra mile to ensure that I and everyone here at Trimble have everything they need to succeed in our roles. I would highly recommend Ewa to any of my friends and colleagues and any company would be fortunate to have her. She has single-handedly built and navigated an entire design system throughout Trimble. She has led and organized the path for success in our whole company including agriculture, construction, geospatial, and transportation. She is truly an extremely talented leader and designer. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with her.
