Stef Lewandowski Biography

Award-winning designer, software developer and entrepreneur, Stef is co-founder of Makeshift — an independent London start-up studio, building digital products.

To a hacker - impressed indignation is a familiar reaction – how dare anyone access millions of people’s personal data? And how could someone possibly be clever enough to do so? In reality the new hackers, such as the unique and impressive Stef Lewandowski, are not shadowy figures absorbed in illegal activity and exposing sensitive data, but creative and motivated individuals, whose unique approach to making things digital are combined with a pioneering and passionate vision for the future, and enabling social change.

A hack is a prototype that demonstrates something about the future. Sketching with code, Stef simplifies processes and technologies and tries out early stage ideas in basic building block forms....

Award-winning designer, software developer and entrepreneur, Stef is co-founder of Makeshift — an independent London start-up studio, building digital products.

In reality the new hackers, such as the unique and impressive Stef Lewandowski, are not shadowy figures absorbed in illegal activity and exposing sensitive data, but creative and motivated individuals, whose unique approach to making things digital are combined with a pioneering and passionate vision for the future, and enabling social change.

A hack is a prototype that demonstrates something about the future. Sketching with code, Stef simplifies processes and technologies and tries out early stage ideas in basic building block forms. With a talent for igniting passion in anyone he comes across, Stef is on a mission to help people access their inner creativity to build things they had only dreamt of.

Translating his skills to business, he highlights the importance of getting inside a complex organisation, and exploring its workings before putting it back together to create a more effective model.

Living by the maxim “create something every day”, Makeshift builds useful web/mobile/tech products aimed at ‘giving a leg up to the little guy’.

Before Makeshift, he co-founded Aframe, a cloud-based video production platform. As the technical founder, helped grow the company from two to over thirty staff, saw it through $10m of private investment and on to international expansion.

Stef undertook a Clore Leadership Fellowship, sponsored by the Cultural Leadership Programme, and was simultaneously involved in a boutique web agency (3form), a record label (Type), a creative industries membership organisation (Creative Republic), and a number of experimental startup projects and festivals.
