that his heart remains in a place called
Mosfellsbær on the west coast of Iceland
“where the mountains see everything and
the trees keep secrets.”
For this designer, his greatest passion is
the development of projects for the music
industry. He states that his love of music is
what led him to dedicate himself to design
and photography. His main objective is to
search for formal and stylistic beauty.
REYKJAVIK IS THE MOST northern
capital in the world: during winter there
are only four hours of solar light and
during the summer the nights are as
bright as the days. It is also home to the
graphic designer and photographer Jónas
Valtýsson.
He graduated from the Icelandic Art
Academy and lives and works in the
city of Reykjavik. However he admits
“I’ve just graduated from university so I
don’t have a studio as yet. My apartment
is basically where I carry out my projects.
It can prove disastrous when I’m cooking
pancakes, making collages, and working
with images on the computer, all on the
same table. But it is great – home sweet
home.”
