Richard Vijgen


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&shy, Sign Awards and The Dutch De­sign Awards.
Richard also writes about dig­i­tal cul­ture and teaches in­for­ma­tion de­sign and in­ter­ac­tive ar­chi­tec­ture at the Arn­hem School of Art and De­sign.
