From 2009 to 2012 i was part of what would later became Rafnar (www.rafnar.com). I joined the small team in order to render images of the yachts designed by Össur Kristinsson but was soon tasked with bringing the ideas to reality.
During this time we made and tested a number of prototypes from small-scale models to full-scale working prototypes.
I was responsible for building a cross-disciplinary design team, managing the design, prototyping, and testing of several different boats from 6 -15 metres for very different markets.
This time put me in contact with quite a diverse group of users and stakeholders, from the megayacht crowd in Cannes to special forces soldiers, teaching me some valuable lessons in how to approach, understand and cater to very different user groups.
