My name is Siggi Eggertsson. I was born in Akureyri, Iceland, in 1984. In my childhood, drawing and computers were my biggest hobbies. I found out that I could combine those two into a profession called graphic design. When I was 18 I moved to Reykjavik and started studying graphic design at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. During my studies I spent a summer in New York, doing an internship with KarlssonWilker. I also took a semester off in 2005 to study at Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee. While studying, Print Magazine selected me for their New Visual Artists, as one of 20 brightest design stars under the age of 30. My focus kind of shifted while I was in school, I realized that my interest in general graphic design was fading, and I was getting more and more into illustration and typography. I graduated from school in 2006.
