Goddur and the Iceland Academy of the Arts

First step – do a research on the Internet to find the best art academy in Iceland. Second step – find people in there who might be interested in Polish posters. It was not easy, but we met on our way the best person and guide in one. We are very happy that we can do the Polish Poster Project together. Let us introduce Goddur, Professor of Visual Communication at Department of Design and Architecture, Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavik.
