Anita Silva

Anita is a designer and art director from Milan, Italy, who specialises in product design and visual identities. She holds a BA in Design from Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, and an MA in Narrative Environments from Central Saint Martins in London. She has worked in companies all over the world, including Paris, London, Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo. For the last three years, she has worked in Milan at Actant Visuelle, a design studio specialising in flexible systems for visual identities and curatorial projects.

Connie Pedersen

Connie is a designer hailing from the city of the midnight sun, Tromsø. Her schooling went down at Norwegian School of Creative Studies in Oslo, and Hyper Island in Stockholm. She went down the advertising path, working in both Paris and New York, before she realised that designing impactful products was her true passion: a discovery we are very thankful for! The past two years she worked at the digital studio Railway in Oslo.

Paulius Friedt

Although originally based in Vilnius, Lithuania, front-end developer Paulius is no stranger to the Norwegian shores, as he has both studied and worked here before. He holds a BA in Visual Communications from Bergen Academy of Arts and Design, along with a BSc in Computer Science from Vilnius University. His background of both design and technology, combined with his years of experience as a developer, makes him a solid addition to our front-end team!

Wesley Cheung

Wesley is joining us as our first-ever Blockchain Engineering intern! He is writing a bachelor thesis at the University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam, and will do his graduation project with us in Oslo this semester. The project will explore the potential for blockchain technology within the realm of plastic recycling, and aims to increase the incentives to get people to recycle more, ultimately helping to reduce plastic waste in the ocean. Stay tuned for more on this exciting project in the time to come.

We are beyond excited to get everybody onboard and look forward to seeing them in action! 🔥
