Hi πŸ‘‹, I’m Jonathan Terranova.

A Little About…

My Work

With a background in diverse design areas, including graphic, web, app, email, print, and social, I’m a versatile designer who can adapt to any creative challenge. I’ve built WordPress sites (like this one) and believe climate considerations should be a part of all design solutions. As a climate designer I aim to utilize my skills to make a positive impact on the world.

I believe in a research-focused approach to design, ensuring that every decision is backed by thorough understanding and insights. My methodology emphasizes the importance of marketing principles and user journeys, creating designs that not only look visually appealing, but drive results. I’m also a strong advocate for A/B testing designs to optimize their effectiveness.

Having managed design teams while also being actively involved in design work myself, I bring a player/coach perspective to projects. I understand the nuances of leadership and collaboration, combining them with my design expertise to create meaningful outcomes.

My Life

I am a husband, father to 3 amazing kids, soccer coach and DIYer who has learned a wide variety of skills from carpentry, construction, electrical, and plumbing, to cooking and home brewing (beer and kombucha). My favorite meal began by trying to re-live a childhood memory. It lead me to an old family recipe for Sfincione β†—, that became a family activity.

My lineage consists of farmers and vintners, who cultivated the varied microclimates on the island of Sicily. Growing up I was one of those little kids walking through a garden, picking and eating a tomato like an apple. Farming is in my D.N.A. and when land became scarce at my new home, I turned to urban farming, specifically Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA).
