Meet the very first Icelandic Umbraco Gold Partner - Vettvangur
We are Vettvangur. We are based in Reykjavik, Iceland and we take great pride in being the first Icelandic web studio to become an Umbraco Gold Partner.
Our history goes back to 2012, when our founders teamed up for a project and ultimately decided to commit to Umbraco and built the company around the platform. Not a bad decision at all! The name, Vettvangur, is the Icelandic word for a place where things happen. In our case those would be the digital things 😉
Fast forward nearly a decade later and we have grown to a team of 16, full service digital agency in the fields of design, development and digital business. By utilizing the strengths of Umbraco and the best of web technologies at any given time we have made some fantastic solutions and hell, we even got a few awards to show for it!
Why did we go with Umbraco?
Open source was and still is a big factor. We, of course, love it as developers but even more so - it’s a business criteria for our partners and most modern companies and rightfully so. At the same time it’s secure and technically solid, backed by a strong and professional ecosystem.
"Throughout the years we have engaged and contributed to the community in many ways, including speaking at Codegarden. Officially partnering with Umbraco was simply put a logical next step in our evolution and goes to show our commitment to the platform."
- Elmar Gunnarsson, Co-founder, Vettvangur
Umbraco is super-duper flexible and we love the fact that it comes as a blank canvas out of the box. That allows us to fully customize to the needs of our partners and embrace everything the digital landscape has to offer.
We’re proud to be a Gold Partner
Becoming a Gold partner is something we are particularly proud of. Especially considering we’re the first one from Iceland.
We have been invested in Umbraco for a long time now and throughout the years we have engaged and contributed to the community in many ways, including speaking at Codegarden.
Officially partnering with Umbraco was simply put a logical next step in our evolution and goes to show our commitment to the platform.
“Vettvangur are the true Umbraco vikings. They have been working with Umbraco for years, are Codegarden speakers and dedicated community contributors. Vettvangur is building truly amazing digital solutions for their customers. It feels so right to welcome them as our first Icelandic Gold Partner!”
