A 10/10 experience

I was excited to finally get the chance to work with Anton, and the experience was better than I could have imagined. He's not only a phenomenally skilled interactive designer, design director, and creative thinker, but he's a magnetic, warm, personable, and selfless leader. He was transformative in both internal and client-side meetings, workshops, and production. A 10/10 experience working with Anton.
