About me
My name is Andri Johannsson and I am a London based graphic designer and filmmaker with a keen interest in typography, identity, books, film and music. I believe in storytelling with simple concepts to provide clear communication. I have a background in film theory, multidisciplinary design and black metal music, so I have experience in a broad range of visual communication.

Depression is presented in two ways: We see the mental experience of the protagonist and people’s difficulties responding to his struggle. Sjúkdómur is an Icelandic word for disease.
