Hello! It’s Michael here. I’m a graphic/UX designer based in Reykjavik, Iceland. I have extensive experience of creating visual communications for international organisations, NGOs and museums. 

My recent journey into becoming a UX designer was natural in some ways – I know, UX is all about the process 🙂 – I feel that I can leverage my varied background in business, web and graphic design to really add value to projects.

In my spare time I document my kids’ lives, run, cycle and try to make sourdough bread.

Get in touch if you’d like to know more.
