Lucky Frame is a BAFTA award-winning creative studio in Edinburgh that makes games, software, performance systems, and interfaces that find new ways to interact with audiences – encouraging creativity, innovation, and fun. Founded in 2008 by Yann Seznec, Lucky Frame has received awards and support from the University of Edinburgh, NESTA, the British Council, Creative Scotland, and Channel 4. Their work includes iPhone apps, desktop computer software, games, and performance systems, all of which aim to find new ways to encourage creativity through technology. Recent projects include working closely with Love Music Festival to design, develop, and deliver a set of accessible music creation software to schools across Scotland, developing innovative music games for iPhone such as Pugs Luv Beats, and building an interactive musical pig sty for Matthew Herbert’s One Pig Live world tour.
As a company our focus is on creation. We prioritize making, meaning, and experience above all else. More specifically, we are interested in the relationship between creator and audience, and bringing amazing creative experiences in unusual and exciting ways. We see no difference between purely abstract experiences (such as dragging generative stars) and brief-focused projects for clients (such as making a system for 200 children to make music together).
We love collaborations, so if you have an idea for a great project, or if you are facing a challenge that needs some really creative thinking please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
The company was born out of the success of the Wii LoopMachine, creative music software for Nintendo Wii remotes that Yann created whilst studying for an MSc in Sound Design from the University of Edinburgh. It was featured in Make Magazine, The Independent, Develop, Engadget, and more, and resulted in a hilarious appearance on the BBC for Dragons’ Den.
The company is based in Edinburgh, Scotland, which is a wonderful place that you should come and visit.
