Hi, I am Anton Sten and I make digital products work.
I know it is a bold statement, but I have the experiences and knowledge to back that up. My education is not only in design, but in business as well. This puts me in the unique position of being able to help business decide on the right solution for their digital products.
I am a major proponent of understanding the human element of design and how people interact with it. This seems to change daily and is a rewarding challenge to stay on the forefront of good practice in UI/UX design.

Anton is a laugh and a great Art Director.
Development Manager at Bauer Media Group
Anton is an excellent Art Director. I worked with him in several projects.
Anton is a valued co-worker, always delivering great design. He is also one of the most well-oriented online-art directors I ever had the pleasure of working with; always keeping an eye out for new trends within design and tech within the fields of digital media.
Business Area Manager Global Digital Productions at IKEA Communications AB
Anton is a very talented creator and also a person that I have enjoyed working with immensely. A definitive strength of his is that his creative solutions are also valid from a commercial point-of-view without losing creative edge. Working with Anton means that, as a Project Manager, you can always be sure that you will be able to deliver to the client with quality and on time.
Strategies for Growth | Brand | Technology | Enterprise
Anton is an excellent creative director combining efficiency with great openness and energy. We worked together in challenging conditions and achieved strong, tangible results. Anton is also a delight to spend time with and I consider him a friend as well as a valuable colleague.
Founder at large at Nohr Ink
I think very highly of Anton. He understands (or writes) a concept beyond on- and offline level and is capable of transforming it into eyecatching, sometimes thougthful digital communication. He understands the people-side of the net and is able to work with it - which is quite rare in the ad-busines. On top of all that he has a really nice kind of non-swedish underplayed humour.
CPO and CTO at Vacasol A/S
I had the pleasure to work with Anton on both a general and a project basis. Anton has a great knack of understanding not only the principles of design, but more importantly the user or commercial needs driving a particular creative challenge. We worked on numerous new media design and communication related projects together. Anton has a strong hands-on grasp of new media space and understands the implications of social networking and the new world of communication better than any creative I've met. I learn about a lot of new tools and apps from Anton. Personally, Anton is an intelligent, easy-going guy who's fun to work with. There's always time to discuss something interesting.
Chief Executive Officer at Prototype
Anton is an excellent art director. He understands requirements and contributes with creativity. From research to strategy and creative execution Anton delivers great work on a constant basis.
Head of Marketing, PUMA Nordic AB at Puma SE
Anton understand our needs and wishes. I am far from understanding the real work behind graphic designs and webcoding, but Anton is good at realizing my words into action and often adding some new ideas on top of what was asked for. Openminded and easy to work with. Since a lot of what we (everysport.com) do is connected to sports in one way or the other it really helps that Anton has an interest and understanding when it comes to sports. Best, Rutger Hagstad everysport.com
Co-founder at Menmo
Anton has helped us out on several projects and I am really impressed with his work. He has been a great resource on both art direction and strategy. He is very creative and has a sense of detail and finish that really stands out. It has been a pleasure working with Anton and I hope to do so in the future as well.

I solve big problems on big brands using the power of ideas
Anton was instrumental in providing excellent creative direction and support for a web project we worked on. Not only is he very talented and knowledgeable on digital and everything related to the web, he's also a great guy to work with. I would have no hesitation in working with him again, should the opportunity present itself.
Senior Manager Talent Acquisition - Design \\\ adidas
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!
Co-founder of Sydney Stockholm

CMO at SAGA Diagnostics AB
I had the pleasure of working with Anton at IKEA Communications where he played an important role in the concept development of a global web project. He shared and activated his indepth knowledge and experience in web media- and design in a great manner. I would like to work with Anton again and can recommend him for any digital media project.
I hired Anton to design our website rethink.dk. We had never worked together before which usually leads to some initial confusion. However, in this case it didn´t take two seconds to realize that this guy understood the project 110 percent. What followed was a pleasant ride. Anton took direction very well and provided input and expertise far beyond what we had expected. I´m looking forward to the next project.
Agile Team Coach - ustwo
Anton is a highly professional and reliable person whom I highly recommend as a colleague. He is always dedicated to the project at hand and easy to work with.
Digital producer with a passion for UX
It's quite simple really. If you hire Le Petit Garcon 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.
Co-founder - Shavekit
We worked with Anton in 2013. Findababysitter.com went through a huge redesign as part of a mobile initiative for the business and migrate the site to a responsive design and optimise user journeys for mobile users. 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.
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.
Outrageously good. Few people have Anton’s eye for details. I have hired Anton for several projects ranging from brand strategy, UX/UI makeovers to complete front-end designs. He has always delivered top notch, stellar work. I was deeply impressed by his ability to take an overly complex user interface and make it easy to use in just a few steps. You can easily tell that his decade of acquired knowledge in design and usability makes him stand out among other UX experts. It’s always reassuring to know he is on your side no matter what design project you have. Anton earns my highest recommendation!
Co-founder & Head of UX at Amuse.io
Whenever someone asks me if I know any good freelance UX designers I always answer with Anton. He's a great designer with superior business understanding who always put the user in the front seat and deliver bloody good work. If you get a chance to work with Anton, don't miss it.
