A documentary about the legendary artist duo Woody and Steina Vasulka.

I was commissioned to make a poster and title sequence.
Our interpretation explores the relationship between sound and video by displaying simple visuals with haunting and epic sounds.
Sound in video plays an integral part in the directors vision. When sound is removed the piece is incomplete and time is distorted.
The soundscape mixed with black and white forms perfectly illustrate the cold desolate December in Iceland. A feeling of dread and hope with a hint of tropical spaces.

Brenyolver gin branding
Brenyolver is a high quality Icelandic gin. It is based on the classic tradition of gin making combined with Icelandic herbs that are used to bring out a unique flavor. Arctic thyme and angelica seeds give the most flavor along with juniper berries.
Brenyolver (Brynjólfur) was Lord William Watts tour guide on his expedition through Iceland in 1874. Watts was an explorer and visited Iceland several times, where he wrote about the vastness of Icelandic nature describing terrain, strata, animals, plants, people and culture in his book Snioland. We felt it appropriate to name our product Brenyolver as he brought together British tradition and Icelandic nature which was our main goal in the creation of Brenyolver Old Tom Gin building on the classical gin tradition guided through Icelandic botanicals.

Roforofo is a two man band comprised of Omar Gudjonsson & Tommy Baldu. Formed in 2016 and released their first album in 2017. They commissioned me to illustrate and design the cover. Omar wanted something out of the ordinary so we decided to make a poster rather than an ordinary cd sleave. They fit in an ordinary IKEA frame to make thing extra easy
The album is nominated for best rock album and best rock song at the Icelandic music awards.
