Empowering human cognition through design and technology
flow/control is an interdisciplinary research & development studio focused on solving complex design problems
We specialize in researching, prototyping, and building data‑driven interfaces that support understanding, discovering, experimenting, and high-level decision making.
flow/control practice is built on a premise that the new dynamic medium1we work with should become a tool for thinking2, augmenting what we, as humans, do best instead of replacing us. Our approach often taps into future‑of‑coding research3, exploring new ways of design and computation.
We are tool builders, conscious of the fact that the tools we build, later shape us.
Our approach is rooted in user-centered4 and prototype‑driven design. Our process is established on rapid, collaborative experiments5 with iteratively generated tools, and close collaboration with our clients.
Our work starts by researching domain-specific knowledge, and exploring the legacy environment, creating a shared understanding among all collaborators.
We explore the solution space for a given problem through sketching — both on paper and in code.

We work remotely with clients all over the world, either as in-house team extension or an independent department.
Our studio was founded in 2015 in Poznań, Poland, by a group of enthusiasts of data-driven design and creative uses of technology.
We are a boutique studio, focused on solving problems, instead of artificial growth.
