Hiya! Glad you’re here.

I’m Antoni*

*[an-tuh-knee, an-toni]; Like Anthony but without the “h”

I’ve always adored the similarities between graphic design and UX design. And I’m not talking about making nice visuals. I’m talking about the blend of creativity, problem-solving, and the creation of intuitive, user-centered experiences that both fields demand.

My career in design has been anything but typical. It all started in high school when I came across a PewDiePie video of him making goofy Photoshops. Seriously, this video marked the beginning of my design career. (Looking back, I can see how much my sense of humor has grown since then.) His "Fabulizer" series inspired me to start dabbling in Photoshop, which eventually evolved into a full-fledged design career. Thanks to him, I realized how much I love connecting with others and solving their problems, and how these passions can be professionally fulfilled.

When it came to UX design, however, I've known about it during my time at the University of Texas at Austin. But I was too afraid to switch my degree... again. However, numerous signs gave me the courage to finally transition from graphic design to product design. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to work with business consultants, volunteer organizations, video game startups, and emerging founders, helping to identify problems, design solutions, and turn dreams into reality.

Aside from getting my daily fix of Figma, you can find me cobbling sounds together to make music (quality varies), or fighting my cat. (He usually wins.)

Definitely a real background behind me.

What makes me an effective product designer?

I’m used to dealing with tight deadlines and last minute changes.

I come from a working environment where many design projects have a 1 day turnaround time, or even sooner. I’m familiar with prioritization, especially when the deadline is cutting close.

I strive to get to the root of the problem.

Call me Sherlock Holmes because I like to ask a lot of questions. I leave no stone unturned when understanding what we’re trying to solve.

I’m graciously open to feedback.

I’m constantly growing as a designer, and learning new things. I make it a point to encourage feedback. Every critique is an opportunity to grow and learn something new.

I love getting to know people!

One might call me a yapper. But building rapport with the people I work with is incredibly important to me. I love listening to others and enjoying their company.

I’m a resourceful self-starter.

Sure, I’m a fan of survival games, but when it comes to my work, I require little hand-holding. I’m autonomous and capable of tackling challenges head-on, with a track record of handling large projects independently.

I’m daring. I’m curious. I’m dedicated.

I constantly think outside the box for solutions. My curiosity leads me to explore new possibilities, and my dedication ensures I see every project through. I thrive on challenges and push boundaries to find solutions.

I’ve worked with over 20 product designers in my career, and I can happily say that working with Antoni was like a breath of fresh air.

Other things I’m into!

Music Festivals!
The music, the people, the love, the energy; it's a vibrant celebration of life that keeps me coming back for more.
Music Production!
It's like Excel but with your ears!
But for real though, I'm fascinated by how great sound design can result in tracks that are addictive and ear-catching. Can't really say how good my music is but when you build the right melodies, the right rhythms, with the right sounds... it feels like magic.
The one place where I can meet my childhood heroes.
My cat Patches!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words... frankly, I'm still counting when it comes to this one
