gudbjornvalgeirsson

33-year old Icelandic/Swede who enjoys simple things in life and when things make sense. When I’m not thinking about design or walking around taking pictures I enjoy fine beer, lifting heavy things and the football team GAIS. I like cheesy country music as well as evil black metal and I love a good drama film that hits you hard in the feels.

Design thinking
Everything begins with a need, and as a designer I strive to meet that need with something purposeful. I believe that strong messages very often require simple solutions and I see design both as an inherent skill and a craft that, if used correctly, can solve a wide range of problems.

Worked with
Geely, Volvo, Göteborgs-Posten, Sony, Collector Bank, Tele2, Burger King, Gothenburg Museum of Art, GAIS, Varbergs kommun, ByggVesta, CEVT, Gemalto FristadsKansas, Akademiska Hus, BK Häcken and more.

I’m always open for new challenges, opportunities and collaborations. Feel free to contact me with any proposals or questions. Please call me at +44 788 810 22 58 or email me at gudbjorn@valgeirsson.me to get in touch.
