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.
"The book provides tools for creating data portraits and is richly illustrated throughout, concluding with a section that includes more white space for readers to craft their own visual language." -- Eye magazine
