Andreas Kleiner

Andreas is a multidisciplinary designer, who firmly believes we should leave the world better than how we found it. He subscribes to the idea that to tackle challenges successfully, you need to understand people, design and technology, in that order.

Andreas has always been curious about the relationship between people and technology. As a child, he built robots and his own computers until he discovered his passion for design, which led him to Hyper Island, a school specializing in digital technology. After graduation, Andreas set up a creativity lab, led the design team of a start-up, and collaborated with small businesses and Fortune 500 companies alike. In 2014, he packed his bags and moved from his native Sweden to New York City, where he co-founded Surprisingly Good, a pop-up R&D lab focusing on social change, sustainable business development, and culture transformation. After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2015, Andreas joined the design team at Artefact.

When he isn’t in front of a whiteboard or computer screen, you can find Andreas outdoors, with a backpack and his family, or exploring the depths of the oceans in his scuba diving gear.
