Anton is clearly ahead of the game when it comes to UX, Interface design and being a total professional

Anton was provided with wireframes and journey documents and got to work. He followed the brief but was not afraid to voice his opinion and advise where he felt things could be improved. The project was extremely well managed with clear milestones which eliminated scope creep. The result was an extremely clean and smart interface which has been great for our business.

The entire project was run remotely between our London office, Bulgaria office and Anton. We still marvel at the fact that we never spoke to one of the most important people of the overall project. Everything was communicated over email and Skype chat with zero dramas, exactly how we like it.

On top of all of that Anton is clearly ahead of the game when it comes to UX, Interface design and being a total professional.

Beware of friendly Swedish User Interface Designers who come equipped with positive open attitudes and sharp clean design principles. They are usually right, just nod and agree.

It's quite simple really. If you hire Anton you will be very happy with the end result. When we hired Anton he worked from his office in Malmö and the majority of our collaboration was made online. Usually this poses a problem when debating/talking about design but with Anton it worked effortlessly. He had no problem transforming our wishes into a design that felt spot on.
