30-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 soccer team GAIS. I live with my partner in Gothenburg, Sweden. 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. First and foremost, good design depends on solid research and a clear brief that paves the way for a consistent visual message. I believe that strong messages very often require simple solutions and I see design both as an inherent skill and craft that, if used correctly, can solve a wide range of problems.

Picture making

I take pictures because I have to. I have a profound longing to create and pictures have become my main outlet besides my profession as a designer. I love to look at pictures, make them, talk about them, organize them and make sense of them.

I studied Informationsproduktion, a graphic design education with a focus on print, at Yrgo. Since then I've built my knowledge through various internships and employers such as Shout Advertising, F&B Factory and CP&B. Right now I'm a Design Director at Brandwork Design & Communication. Through the years I've worked with clients such as Tele2, Burger King, FristadsKansas, Varbergs Kommun, GAIS, BK Häcken, CEVT, Donnergymnasiet, Sony, Sankt Jörgen Spa, Hagabadet and Gemalto.

I'm always open for new challenges, opportunities and collaborations. Feel free to contact me with any proposals or questions.
