We are a London based studio blending design, software and aesthetics emerging from data, processes and human behaviour.

Studio

Input

We work with brands, research groups and organisations on new ways of experiencing data and understanding complex systems; We bring in generative strategies, computational design, machine learning algorithms and data visualisation and combine them with human sensitivity.

Output

We create bespoke tools to explore the possibility space from early stages of research and concept development, through prototyping and experimentation right until the final artefact. Variable brought to life ever changing digital sculptures for Twitter, immersive installation for Monotype, data driven designs for Nike, 28k projection for Google, R&D workshop for Wellcome Trust and many more.

Tech

We use code as our primary medium. Our in-house open-source 3d engine allows us to reach across print, web, mobile and large scale screen installations.

Marcin Ignac

Founder & Creative Lead

Marcin specializes in data visualization and computational design. He finds beauty and inspiration in structures of biological organisms, in patterns emerging from data and complexity of computer algorithms. He believes in applying these concepts to shape our understading of technology mediated creativity. In 2012 Marcin combined his background in Computer Science, New Media Art and Interaction Design to start Variable and fulfil this vision.
