Richard Vijgen is founder of Studio Richard Vijgen, a design studio for contemporary information culture. Richard investigates new strategies to find the big stories in big data through research and design. His work is deeply rooted in the digital domain but always connects with physical or social space. He designs and produces interactive data visualizations and data installations ranging from microscopic to architectural in scale. He uses code, pixels and 3D printers to convey ideas.
The studio is based online, but resides in the Netherlands and works with a wide range of clients and institutions around the world. The studio's work has widely been recognized by professional organizations and publications, including Wired, Gestalten, The Smithsonian, Rhizome, The European De­, Sign Awards and The Dutch Design Awards.
