Reykjavík Center Map

Layout & UI Design

2010 — 2011

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

Poster

2010

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.

Menningarnótt 2011

Identity & Web Design

2010 — 2011

We designed a flexible identity that will take on a theme every year. We also developed an interactive system to pick your favourites out of over 400 events going on that day.


You can visit the site for the 2011 Culture night at Menningarnott.is.

Menningarnótt means "Culture Night", and is a day full of art, music and events held in August every year. Around 100,000 people find their way to downtown Reykjavík for it.
Done in collaboration with Borgarmynd, Brian Suda and Marandros.
