i'm a designer from iceland currently based in san francisco

If you can design one thing,
you can design everything

Halló (means hello in Icelandic) and nice to meet you. My name is Rúnar—but mostly everyone calls me Roo—and I'm a designer person. Although my educational background and current job are in digital design, I love all areas of design and problem solving.

I was born and raised in Iceland but I'm currently based in San Francisco where I work as a Product Designer at PayPal.

I came to San Francisco in 2012 to play college soccer while pursuing a higher education. Along with playing for The Urban Knights on an athletic scholarship, I graduated from the Web & New Media department at the Academy of Art in San Francisco in fall 2015.

I know all the good design words and acronyms like: Cohesive, AI, Blockchain, Design System, MVP, Agile, IxD, Responsive etc. However, luckily I can also speak and understand non-designer language. So, whether you're a designer or not—along as you're a person—and you have an awesome idea, feel free to reach out, I'd love to help!
