Antonio Cantos is Senior Graphic Designer at Scania R&D. A musician from Marbella, Spain that some twenty years ago met a Swedish girl and fell in love.
Cantos studied Media at the University in Málaga, worked with both interior design and magazines before he moved up north and founded his own company. “Design is so close to music, that’s why I choose that path, although design is my life now, I still playing my classical guitar every time I have a moment”, he says enthusiastically.
He loves all about design and engineering, and keeps on learning things at Scania, where he started off with interior design of the cab. He then was involved in different projects such as Human Interface for future autonomous vehicles and now, his focus is on accessories with Scania Truck Gear: “It’s a new challenge”, he says, having finished the design of one of the three V8-watches. Something he enjoys. “I like to work with real things that you can touch.”
Cantos has been at Scania for four years now, and plans to stay. “I don’t like changes, when you change often, you miss the opportunity of knowing people well, and also the product you are working for”.
