My job was print layout and editing of the ad-sponsored free version of the map, as well as UI design for our interactive map website, Reykjavikcentermap.com.
There's a lot more to come from Borgarmynd in the future.
These last two years I've had the honor of working with my good friends at Borgarmynd on their fantastic map of downtown Reykjavík. Since we started working on this map it has found it's way to the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010, as well as being a part of the official press kit for the city of Reykjavík.
Jói De Vivre
The talented photographer and designer Jói Kjartans asked a few of his friends to design a poster for the release party of his book, Jói De Vivre. The poster had to be based on a specific photograph of his chest. I took a lo-fi 8-bit approach to it.

A poster made in the style of Swiss designer Josef Müller-Brockmann, for a concert with Benni Hemm Hemm & The Icelandic Orchestra. I created a graphic symbol for every istrument and portrayed the band as it would be set up on stage.
Get Rich Slow

The result of a bizarre yet rewarding thought process during Project M: Frankfurt. A group of young designers rebranded old fountains in Frankfurt as wishing wells. Last time someone checked for us, three of them were still marked as such. More information about the process at getrichslow.org.
