We are HYPER STUDIO, a digital creative studio focused on the design of interactive experiences to relate the physical and the virtual.
We research the relationship between individuals and their technological environment, either by moving the cursor on a screen or the body in a space.
We develop interactive spaces, dynamic identities, web platforms, digital strategies, complex informational architectures, digital consultancy, curation of digital art and many other things.
HYPER STUDIO was founded in 2016 by Cristóbal Baños —designer and developer— and Diego Iglesias —architect and cultural manager—, but we are not an isolated entity. We are part of a mutant network of creatives and researchers which we nurture of and collaborate with.
