How I Work
Mountains are my passion. I was a part of many scientific expeditions on Asian mountain glaciers, where I researched, observed and analysed data.

“Irina created a sharp graphic design for my cooking school website. It was a pleasure to work with her. She quickly understood what I needed and offered several proposals. The implementation was timely and flawless. I was very happy with her work and highly recommend her for graphic designer position.”
“I am the owner of DF Resources Inc., a company specializing in IT consulting. We hired Irina Ratsek as a graphic designer to mock up and design our marketing materials. It was very easy to work with her and with her outstanding design skills all materials were completed in a timely manner and were simple and elegant (as we wanted them to look). I would recommend Irina to anyone who needs a very good graphic designer. She is also competitively priced.”
“Irina worked with our non-profit to design and publish our website, Citizens for Responsible Options. She has a keen eye for images and layout to capture the viewer’s interest. We are very pleased with the result. During the process, Ms. Ratsek was completely responsive and a delight to work with. All components of the website work flawlessly including the donation links. I wholeheartedly recommend Irina for her graphic design expertise and web development skills.”
