︎ Index              ︎ Archives              ︎ About              ︎︎︎ Anton & Irene

Originally from Estonia; I am a New York based interaction designer with a background in architecture. My career spans over 18 years in the industry building products, digital experiences, brands and simply fun and engaging things people love to use.




For over 8 years I served as a creative director at Fantasy Interactive living in Stockholm, Sweden and New York City. Since 2014 I create things at Anton & Irene studio which I co-founded in Brooklyn with Irene Pereyra. I’ve spoken at over 50 conferences around the world as well as teach on a regular basis at Harbour Space university in Barcelona, Spain.

Despite all of the above, this site is a showcase of my personal design experiments, concepts and design thinking, and are all things that I create during my spare time.
