Talk will be in english and topic will be #Design
After breaking away from agency life and having gone independent, Anton & Irene are treating their Brooklyn-based studio as their long-term passion-project. Now in its third year, they finally managed to find the perfect balance between working on client work (and getting paid!) and working on self-initiated projects (for free!). They will share their experience on how to successfully have a good work/life balance while producing creative work for both.
Anton Repponen and Irene Pereyra climbed their way from junior designers to founders of their own studio. Their studio Anton & Irene is known well beyond Brooklyn and their projects are not limited to web-design. In their portfolio you will find projects for Karim Rashid, Zumtobel, The Met, Nickelodeon, BBC, Balenciaga, Wacom, National Geographic, USA Today and Red Bull, as well as self-initiated projects like an interactive documentary on co-living, and an analog wristwatch. Besides that, almost every month Anton and Irene deliver workshops and lectures in various corners of the world. They have more than a dozen of prestigious awards including Webby, Emmy, Red Dot, .NET and Cannes Lions. And, yes, their studio does indeed deserve a specifically dedicated board on Pinterest.
