gummisig is a freelance web designer with satisfied clients worldwide. gummisig has been designing websites professionally for over eight years, and is very keen on personal service. I would describe gummisig as a spiritual fast learning generalist with a passion for remarkable design.
That´s enough of talking about myself in the third person.
At first I intended to be an animator and went to design school fully motivated to become just that. One thing led to another and 2 years went by and I was a (almost) fully fledged freelance web designer without ever planning to become one.
This fortunate turn of events has lead me to design websites for such people as Ikea, Life, Designtorget, Private Estate Life & Ingvar Helgason. To work with people from all over the world is very rewarding. Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Germany, India, USA and England are some of the countries I have worked with. Well not the country itself, but people living there.
I have sucessfully been a freelance web designer now for a while and it has given me even more love for this work. I have worked with ad agencies, web developers, diaper makers, pension funds, furniture makers, businiess women & men, friends & family.
I have coded websites with great respect to standards, because it makes life easier for everybody. My site even used to validate, honestly!
I have three soon to be four wonderfull kids, Matti, Regína and Katrín, and one lovely wife Eydís. I live in Iceland and work both in my sons room in Keflavík and at various coffee houses in Keflavík and Reykjavík, as well as traveling to my clients HQ to work very closely with the people there. This can be anywhere on this Planet, still waiting for warp technology to develop to go beyond it.
Feel free to contact me at any time on any issue like:
- “I need a basic website. Simple, yet elegant and a remarkable presence on the Internet.”
- “I want to sell stuff online, can you design me through the process?”
- “I need a corporate website with simple easy to use Content Management System. No special skills or training needed please”

”Gummi is a genius, and it’s a pleasure to work with such a creative and emotionally intelligent designer. Sparnaður business concept is very demanding for moral insight as its business is providing financial consultancy for the interests of the people. I have worked with Gummi for 2,5 years and he got our website nominated for an award in 2009. Gummi has got his heart and mind at the right place to master every task in his category. Gummi gets my best recommendations for everyone who is seeking the right man for the job.”

“ThinkGeoEnergy definitely needed a face lift having used an off-the-shelf WordPress Theme for way too long. So I turned to Gummi for help in creating a brand new and modern look to the site. … well, I wasn’t disappointed. The implementation of my thoughts and Gummi’s ideas was rather smooth, a fantastic collaboration and work. I am very pleased with the outcome, can´t wait to tackle another project with Gummi … if he wouldn’t be so popular right now though.”
