Hi, I’m Anton and I make digital products work πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

It really is a bold statement, but I have the experience and knowledge to back it up. With my education background in design and business, I am in a great position to help businesses decide on the right solutions for their digital products and then execute it!

I am a firm believer in understanding the human element of design and knowing your audience. Your user wants to have a great experience with your brand – from start to finish – and I want to make that happen.

 

Give back, Get back

As a small business owner, I feel that it is important to share my business and design experience with students from Hyper Island. It was there that I received my design education and matured as a designer focused on simple user-focused design. It also gives me a peek into the minds of younger designers who are part of a quickly changing design environment. This keeps me current with what works today and what will work even better tomorrow!

Also, it’s important for me to put β€œmy money where my mouth is.” The companies that I respect (and end up watching closely) are those that value their customer enough to create great user experiences. I regularly invest 50% of my company’s profit into their companies to make sure they can keep doing good work. Turns out, there is strong evidence that say investing in a great user experience results in great profits. As much as I am confident I will get a good return on my investment, I also know that I can be part of their success.

 

On a personal note

I have the best wife in the world that supports me through all things. She has always been by my side, encouraging me and without her, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do.

We also have an amazing dog, Meta, that is loyally by my side every day as I work on projects. She’s a big part in my life, always there and offering silent critique of what I’m doing. Meta even occasionally deletes my work, which is usually a sign that I’m going in the wrong direction.

I had the pleasure of working with Anton on one of our highest priority projects. He was able to quickly familiarize himself with the challenges at hand and produced conceptual UX designs that not only met the demands, but even exceeded expectations.

Anton has been a great co-creator with both a positive attitude and openness for feedback, as well as able to get the job done on time.

We hired Anton for some freelance design work at Fjord and were thrilled with the results. Not only was he very responsive during the project briefing and negotiation process, he also was very flexible to our demanding project start time and schedule.

Once the work was under way, we realized Anton is extremely creative with a high-standard for what he produces. His design aesthetic is quite sophisticated and it’s obvious he sincerely cares about going the extra mile for his clients.

We look forward to collaborating with Anton again in the future!
