Giorgia Lupi is an award-winning information designer, author, and co-founder of Accurat, a data-driven design firm where she serves as design director. She is also the co-author of Dear Data, an aspirational hand-drawn data visualization book. Lupi’s work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, where in 2017, she was commissioned to do an original site-specific art piece. Lupi has won numerous awards, including the “Lezioni di Design” Prize at Milan’s Design Week in 2016; she has been featured in The New York Times, Guardian, Washington Post, and many other major media outlets. With an M-Arch from FAF in Ferrara, Italy and a PhD in Design from Politecnico di Milano, Lupi’s data visualization process is driven by opposing forces: analysis and intuition, logic and beauty, numbers, and images. She believes we will ultimately unlock the full potential of data only when we embrace its nature, making data part of our lives, inevitably making it more human in the process.
