Hi and thanks for checking in!

The person behind Reykjavík Underground is Íris Ösp, a graphic designer from Iceland who studied at the Accademia Italiana, Florence, Italy.

The course is called Graphic Design and Visual Communication, but Íris also emphasised photography in the course.

Íris graduated in the spring of 2016 but had tampered with graphics quite a bit before and studied photography at

The Reykjavík School of Visual Arts in Reykjavík.

Íris works with branding for companies and individuals, the look, design and layout of magazines and brochures, photo processing, packaging design, drawings and illustrations to name a few.

Her main goal is to provide professional and personal service and have fun along the way.

Alongside the graphic design, Reykjavík Underground is also a gallery

with works by Íris Ösp that she works under the name

" Punkland ".

What do customers say?

"We got Iris to work on a project that we had very specific ideas about. Iris was quick to read what we wanted and also contributed a lot to the project. Iris works quickly and safely and not only delivered what we wanted but went with it. "Iris is both comfortable and professional in collaboration, I can definitely recommend her". Unnar Geir Unnarsson Director and Director of Culture.


"I run a busy studio making promotional films and documentaries in Florence, Italy. I commissioned Iris to redesign my company logo. I was delighted with the results- she understood the brief, delivered quickly and efficiently, and even gave me a range of options (which I hadn't expected.) She is a professional and kind person too, and someone I will definitely use in the future ".

Kirsten Hills, British Video Journalist.


"We love this very professional workpiece, it's more art than design! Especially the elaboration of the complex 3-dimensional metallic balloons that seem to be opaque like Christmas tree balls. That turns the whole illustration into some kind of unreal and fantastic illusion".

Kristina Brandt, M: CONSULT GMBH -Medical Marketing, Germany.


"great and high quality service. Marketing experience. Professionalism at your fingertips - highly recommend"

Dagbjartur Ingvar and Svanhildur, Borgarnes, Iceland.
