About me

I’m Auðbergur Gíslason, a designer from Iceland.

I’ve worked for many companies, institutions, associations, and individuals. At age 25, I became a senior designer for Heimkaup, Iceland’s biggest e-commerce. Before that, I was a designer for Alcoa, where I focused on UI. Currently, I’m a Product Designer at the City of Reykjavík where I’m in charge of the city’s Design System.

I studied Production Technology and Product Development at The Copenhagen School of Design and Technology in Denmark. While there, I was the head of KEA Goes Deep, a team that built a small remotely operated submarine that we competed with at an international contest in LA.

I’m curious, and I love to learn new things. My mission is to become the best — constantly furthering and deepening my skills and knowledge.
