Join Columbia Road

Anton_OsterlundHi Anton, How did you get good at what you do?

I have studied design and communication at many different schools in Sweden like Berghs School of Communication, Hyper Island and Lund University.

I have always had a creative streak that I felt the need to express. For me it is the problem solving of it all that really compels me. I also have a strong urge to always learn new things and to never stop evolving, this is what drives my progress.

Where have you earned your spurs?

My work experience ranges from small startups to big government agencies and advertising agencies. I possess a broad experience from a host of different types of projects. I have worked with visual re-design and branding of company websites, conducted pre-studies for government agencies, collected qualitative data from user testing and interviews and created new concepts by facilitating workshops. I believe this has been great for creating a diverse toolbox to work with.

Why Columbia Road?

The connection between design, business, market and technology is what makes Columbia Road stand out. Finding where those all intersect makes it possible to meet and create a bigger benefit for both the user and the business. I like that Columbia Road champion experimentation and curiosity and has the guts to dare challenge old ways and see solutions instead of problems. On top of that Columbia Road is a company that elevates their consultants and recognise their competence and their value.

Lauri, what will make our clients love Anton?

"As a designer Anton is extremely creative and has a great eye for visual design. He has broad experience and understanding of different parts of an organisation and how they operate which enables him to cooperate with all functions within a company.

What really sets him apart is his innate problem solving skills and susceptibility to his environment and the people around him. This gives him a unique ability to visualise and create solutions for clients that really cater to their needs and solve their business problems. Anton is also one of the nicest people you will come across. His humility, commitment and easy going attitude is just a pleasure to have on your team," says Lauri Eurén, General Manager at Columbia Road.

What makes your heart beat a little faster?

To get an outlet for my creativity and my love for problem solving no matter if that means handcrafting in leather, renovating a house, designing a 3D character for a game or creating a converting website. 

You should also never underestimate the value of training hard! A little grit is always good to have up your sleeve.
