RoShamBo varð til þegar þrír listamenn og vinir ákváðu að sameina krafta sína, þekkingu, reynslu og hæfileika. Til varð vetvangur fyrir fjölbreytt verkefni þar sem aðferðum listarinnar er beitt í hagnýtum tilgangi, eða hagnýtir hlutir eru settir í samhengi listarinnar, eða bara alskonar áhugaverðir hlutir eiga sér stað.
RoShamBo was created when three artists and friends decided to join forces and put together their accumulated knowledge, experience and talent. This has created a platform for diverse projects where the methods of art are applied in a utilitarian manner, or practical things are looked at through the methods of art, or simply a lot of interesting stuff happens.
það sem við gerum :: the things we do
leytum stöðugt að ónýttum tækifærum, breytum rusli í verðmæti, hönnum lógó og merkingar, búum til skilti, tökum ljósmyndir, búum til fallegt umhverfi og stemningu, vinnum í alskonar vöruþróun, búum til hluti með höndunum, vinnum eitthvað úr eingu, finnum nýja fleti, stýrum verkefnum, vinnum fyrir viðskiptavini, vinnum fyrir samfélagið, vinnum fyrir okkur, gleymun ekki að leikum okkur, höldum alls konar námskeið, bökum brauð og kökur, höfum mikin áhuga á öllu staðbundnu, elskum jörðina, höfum gaman að tilraunum, erum alltaf að læra…
constantly search for new opportunities, transform shit to gold, design and layout, make signs, photograph people, places and things, create beautiful events, spaces and experiences, develop products and make prototypes, innovate, crafts for people and homes, organize and model, love the earth, enjoy unravelling hidden treasures, work for clients, work for the community, work for our selfs, never forget to play, learn something new every day…
Work with us..
More precisely RoShamBo do happenings and evoke ideas and solutions to sustain or investigate future circumstances of life in a rural area. We care about how things tastes, looks and more importantly what is inside or lies behind them and how it got there. We are artists and designers with a coherent set of aesthetics, who embrace and offers expertise in fields like product- and interior design, graphic design and illustration, layout work of printed matter, books, design of webpages and other web related assignements. We enjoy to develop exhibition concepts as well as whole PR campaigns and organize events. Our portfolio also includes design of (and if possible) the making of hand painted signs for out- or indoor purposes.
We are happy to share our skills and knowhow in precious topics like artisan baking, printmaking, book making and binding and a diverse range of knowledge within arts and crafts, through courses, workshops and instructions for children and adults alike. For more on this topic go to RoShamBo Workshops or visit our facebook page and blog or head over to Skaftfell.is (- center for visual art in East Iceland) where RoShamBo courses are occasionally hosted.
As a group of three women, we are all interested in local resource and getting the most out of what is; treasuring the journey as well as the end goal or result.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for questions or enquiries. We are more than happy to give you an offer for your custom assignment.
We are also happy to collaborate and unfold relevant topics in the community and elsewhere with a focus on local resource and sustainability. Get in touch!
