In the digital world, you have to be exceptional to stand out, and that’s what we’re here to do. Snowhouse Studio is a digital design studio based in Reykjavik, Iceland, whose sole purpose is to help our clients create mind-blowing digital experiences for their customers, to drive business results.
The company was started by Thorir Runarsson in late 2020 in the midst of a global pandemic and a fevered rush for companies to get online. Thorir saw the potential to bring some fresh take to digital design, combining the creativity he holds so dear with cutting-edge thinking in user interface design, e-commerce, and conversion theory. He is a self-taught designer and Webflow developer, and he brings these first principles thinking to an industry that so desperately needs it.
Around him, Thorir has built a small but passionate remote team that goes above and beyond with every client to provide an exceptional level of service. We work hard to align our incentives with those of our clients, and that’s why, in just a short space of time, we are already working with some of the best agencies and start-ups in the world.
There’s something special here. And we’re just getting started.
Hey there 👋. My name is Thorir, and I’m so glad that you’ve stumbled upon our little corner of the internet. We do things differently here and so I just wanted to share a little bit about my journey to give you some context as to how things are at Snowhouse Studio.
My entrepreneurial journey began back in 2015 when I co-founded an Icelandic travel marketplace with my childhood friend. Looking back now, we didn’t have a clue what we were doing. I didn’t know anything about design, building websites, or running a business. We were running in the dark, for the most part.
What we figured out was that having a great website was one of the most important piece of the puzzle because that’s how we were going to build trust and win customers. So, we set out to make it ourselves. We didn’t have the money to pay an established agency or design studio, so we went the freelance route. We worked with several people from sites like Fiverr and Upwork, and we just couldn’t seem to get the quality that we wanted.
This was a blessing in disguise because it forced us to learn all the ins and outs of website design so we could create something we could be proud of. It was those early steps that put me on this path towards what would become Snowhouse Studio. I’m now fortunate enough to be in a position to help other people create their dream websites, leveraging the thousands of hours we spent perfecting ours.
Our mission here at Snowhouse Studio is to bring the design quality and service of a high-end agency, but at a fraction of the cost. Our hope is that by delivering our services affordably, your business can save time and money and accelerate its growth potential.
We see our clients as our partners, and we are genuinely here with you for the long-haul. We strive to make sure that every project receives the care and attention it needs to be extraordinary. When you leverage our design and development skills, you can rest assured that you’re going to walk away with something that will help you stand out from the rest.
For as long as I’m at the helm, I will do everything in my power to drive your business forward through some of the best digital design services you can find.
That is my promise.
Thorir Runarsson, Founder of Snowhouse Studio
