Giorgia Lupi is an award winning information designer. She co-founded Accurat, a data-driven design firm with offices in Milan and New York where she is the design director. She received her M-Arch at FAF in Ferrara, Italy, and earned a PhD in Design at Politecnico di Milano. She relocated from Italy to New York City, where she now lives.
Stefanie Posavec is a data designer whose work focuses on non-traditional representations of data derived from language, literature or scientific topics. Often using a hand-crafted approach, her work has been exhibited at, among others, MoMA in New York, CCBB in Rio de Janerio, the Science Gallery in Dublin and the V&A in London. In 2013 she was Facebook's first data-artist-in-residence at their Menlo Park campus.
"Lupi and Posavec's approach teaches mental and emotional
attentiveness. Their examples inspire you to think creatively about
your personal habits, and to approach them with a slowness that
lets you reflect on their meaning." - Quartz
"Experiencing the project anew, in this beautiful analog form, only amplifies its deeply humane ethos of reclaiming the living texture of "data" in our everyday lives from the word's unfeeling, algorithmic, non-human connotations." - Brain Pickings
"Dear Data is a revelation of the human face of data." - Quartz
"...a remarkable visual snapshot of the lives of two bright women corresponding with each other in innovative ways and will appeal to designers and best friends alike...With each pair of postcards presented side by side, readers immediately experience Lupi and Posavec's different styles and sensibilities and witness how they influence and complement each other over the course of this year." - Publishers Weekly
