eggertsson's album art for the second apparat organ quartet won best cover art at the icelandic music awards
the work of icelander and berlin-based illustrator / designer siggi eggertsson
combines the influences of classic
impressionism with contemporary technology. even to the degree that while on sabbatical in a remote icelandic village
from a few years spent between new york, berlin and london he would bring his own canvas out into nature and vectorize
the landscapes. resulting in his constant pushing of grids and pushing of himself to continue to move forward and continue
to develop his illustration style and see just how far it can go. at 27 he has done work for clients including H&M, nike,
coca-cola, espn, microsoft zune and worked in the studios of karlssonwilker
and the big active agency

designboom attended the designmarch 2011 in reykjavik, iceland
where eggertsson presented his 'pólýfónía' album cover
for one of his favorite icelandic bands, the apparat organ quartet (four keyboards and a drum kit), which won best
cover art at the icelandic music awards. see his website for a layer by layer process animation.
"the initial idea was to make a crest for the cover, but turned into making a crest for the 5 band members, 9 for all
the songs on the album, and one for the cover that unites them all. to make it a little harder for myself I decided to
create all the crests with vinyl foil, by cutting and stacking colored layers on top of each other.
