My name is Arnar Jónsson and I am a visual effects artist and a guide. I have worked on the creation of Motion Graphics, Visual Effects and Compositing projects in the field of advertising and film since the year 2006, with the occasional graphics and web-design mixed in. Before that I worked as a salesman in speciality stores that taught me a lot about good service that has served me well though my career. I work well and fast under pressure where no discount is given to the quality of the work. I am punctual, I don’t smoke and have a great passion for the outdoors and sports.
