Stefanie Posavec

Stefanie Posavec was raised in Denver, Colorado, and moved to London permanently in 2004 when completing her MA in Communication Design from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (2006). Her studies focused mainly on the visualization of literature, which led to time as a book cover designer for Penguin Press and the visualization of Stephen Fry's autobiography for his iPhone app 'MyFry' in 2010.

After going freelance in late 2010, she focuses on projects ranging from data visualization and information design to designing book covers (or anything in between) for publishers and creative agencies. Her personal projects have been exhibited internationally, and this work tends to focus mostly on language and literature with an interest in hand-analysed or handmade data visualisations.

Session: Hand-crafted Data

A talk about what it means to be a 'data illustrator', the glories of collecting data for data's sake, and thoughts on what 'handmade' means in regards to data visualization from someone who *still* doesn't know how to code (on the to-do list, I promise!)
