Working out with hunting dogs and hanging out on personal islands? Get to know the Co-Founder and Creative Director of Bob The Robot
The Essential List: Anu Igoni

If you want to work out with Anu Igoni, you won’t find her pumping iron in a generic gym. No, the Co-founder and Creative Director of Finnish agency Bob The Robot can be found out on the Helsinki streets with a big hunting dog by her side. On the weekends though, she’ll ditch the Finnish capital in favour of her own island in the coastal town of Loviisa. These are activities we both respect and envy.
