Graphic designer Siggi Eggertsson has designed his first full-wall mural for the Iceland Design Centre. The mural, which was painted last week, covers an entire wall of the Iceland Design Centre’s headquarters, located in the heart of Reykjavík.

In place of a traditional sign post, the painting is an addition to the Reykjavík cityscape, known internationally for its wall art by various artists and architects, including “The Mountain Series” by architect Theresa Himmer.
“With this project, we wanted to put the Iceland Design Centre on the map,” said the center’s managing director Halla Helgadóttir in a press release.
