About

Hi, my name is Guðmundur Bjarnason, I was born in Reykjavík, Iceland. I studied and worked as a mechanic for 4 years before finding my true passion, game design and 3D art. I acquired my bachelors degree in Game Design and Entertainment Technology at Nord University in Norway. I’ve had the great fortune to work on some excellent projects, while meeting many influential and creative individuals along the way. I believe strongly in teamwork to achieve great things in the video game industry. For more information about my experience, portfolio or how we can collaborate on an upcoming project, get in touch via email.
