Based on a musical curriculum Mussila is a fun and creative game that gives you the basic skills and instruments to play and create your own music.
Mussila is a music game for children, 6-11 years old, in which they learn the basics in music – no experience required! Travel with the Mussila band and participate in jam sessions with musical monsters, taking place on mountainsides surrounded by mystical creatures. The player progresses through skill building levels, by recognising different instruments and defining rhythms and melodies.
Mussila is based on a thoroughly planned curriculum, made to encourage the child’s self esteem through accomplished and fun play. It is a zero violence and gender neutral adventure in which your child learns musical understanding they can build on for life.
After being stuck in the world of bad ideas and boredom for days I finally managed to step out of that world and in to a more colorful and crazy world. That's my illustrated story of those days.

Mæna is a yearly magazine about graphic design in Iceland, published by the department of Design and Architecture – Visual Communication, Iceland Academy of the Arts. Each year has its own theme, and for the 2014 issue Mæna dealt with technology. Designers, academics and students wrote articles on subjects ranging from electronics of the past to dreams of the far future. Graphic design is dependent on technology and is often about making it more accessible. Our intention was to express this in a clear, creative and innovative manner.
The team consisted of 17 students, editor Dóra Ísleifsdóttir and creative directors Birna Geirfinnsdóttir and Lóa Auðunsdóttir. We wanted the magazine itself to be a comment on the designer’s toolkit, using methods such as laser cutting and folding techniques while abstaining from glue and traditional binding methods.
Mæna is set in Adobe Caslon and Apercu, and printed on Colorit, Chromolux and Munken Polar. Published in 500 copies and hand-bound by the team.
