I’m Anton Zykin, CEO and co-founder of SFCD (formerly SoftFacade), a digital product agency focused on mobile and web apps. We’ve worked with enterprise and startups clients such as ADP, T-Mobile, Sony, Huawei, Speedtest.net, and many others.
I started the company in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2007 and I was the only designer for about 2 years. We became world famous for our ultra-photorealistic icons, but people had no idea we were also creating products.
In 2012 we moved to NYC to better collaborate with our clients (most of them were in the US).
In 2014, when the icon work was no longer in high demand, we decided to rebrand as SFCD to get rid of our skeuomorphic past and to position ourselves as a full-service product agency.
We also created Miranda, a minimalist time zone converter for iPhone which was featured by Apple on multiple occasions.
We just opened our San Francisco office to better serve our West coast clientele.
Feel free to ask me anything, but I don’t know much about politics :)
I'll begin answering questions Wednesday, October 7 at 4:00 PST
