About me

An industrious and adaptable designer-developer-tinkerer, with a keen eye for detail and a passion for problem solving.

I have a solid background in design, and a technical head too. I’m open to projects ranging from UX/UI design to a full developmental build of a site from spec, when you’re in need of a front-end developer with a designer’s eye.

I’m a big advocate of prototyping and designing in the browser - I’m intrigued by the intersection of design and engineering and I’m always striving to bridge that gap between disciplines.

365 Customer portal

Editorial, Web

Iceland's 365 Media operates eight TV stations, five radio stations, and one newspaper. It's also the largest corporate network provider in Iceland - offering mobile, landline, TV, and internet services to its customers.

I was responsible for a design system and front-end build of 365's customer portal - a place for customers to view and amend their current package, as well as to check monthly bills and usage. The design was based on a series of smart tile components which adapt to the user's package, as well as customer support features and promoted content.

In collaboration with Sigur
