Anton Repponen and Irene Pereyra climbed their way from junior designers to founders of their own studio. In their portfolio you will find projects for Spotify, SPACE10/IKEA and Red Bull, as well as self-initiated projects.
Nearly every designer after a few years of working for a studio, begins to think about starting his or her own business. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a fancy office, work only on the projects that you like, without having to sell your soul to the devilish client and compromise when amending designs? But reality is more complex than that and definitely less romantic. Anton & Irene will talk about transforming a small studio into a project and will share their experiences including all the successes and failures they went through along the way.
