The Ant Men is the studio moniker and creative outlet for one mild mannered, Anthony Mendoza. But you can call me Tony! I’m a bicoastal New Yorker currently living and working in sunny Los Angeles.

I approach every project with the belief that designers should strive to be consistent in delivering meaningful experiences, but never consistent in design. One must innovate in order to evolve. For every problem presented, the outcome will always be the same… a solution is found. New methods of tackling a problem have to be discovered. No two are ever alike.

Although the current breadth and depth of my work features animation and motion graphics, I've created work in other disciplines from web and print design to branding and identity design.

Get in touch! I’m always in search of new conversations, new collaborators and, of course, challenging new design projects.

When not designing, you can find me in my workshop tinkering… But more often than not, I’m running after my spirited and precocious toddler.

Whew! 😅

What's with the gray hair? Is that for real?
Yep. It's real. Started when I was a little kid. A few strands here. A few strands there. I'm not that old. It's just simple genetics.

Any relation to Marvel's Ant Man?
LOL. As awesome as that would be, the answer is no. But I do have my own set of design powers.
