Daan Lucas

Founder
Random Studio

Daan Lucas (1974) is the founder of Random Studio.

Always had an enormous drive to be part of an organisation that would evoke curiosity, surprise people, create a context that would hold invitation to let one self go.. So…After studying law I wanted to move into the creative field.

I started to organise parties that were decorated and orchestrated in unexpected ways. Our dj was a slightly odd record collector, playing the weirdest tracks that did not always sit well with our audience but at least moved them in some way.

My interest in graphic design led me to start Circus with a friend. After a few years I started to become fascinated about the online world and it’s interactive possibilities. Random was born from that.

Random these days is an interactive design studio. With our work we create a context for a dialogue, a context that evokes curiosity and wonder. A play field that moves people, invites to create and opens new worlds.

In the meantime, I got married to a darling of a wife and became father of two sons. A wonderful journey.
