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-analyzed or handmade data visualizations.
Before embarking on a year-long, time-, mind-, and paper-and-pencil-consuming collaborative data drawing project, Giorgia and Stefanie only met in person twice.
Those two meetings were at Eyeo 2013 and Eyeo 2014, so no wonder they had a very special conference in mind at which to first showcase it together!
Dear Data has always meant to be a personal challenge: they have been trying to extend themselves in both their data collection and their drawing technique: nudging themselves out of their comfort zone, and exploring and expanding on where one can find data and how it can be represented using new visual systems. Giorgia and Stefanie will share how compulsively-collecting and drawing mundane and messy personal data every week for a year (and posting it via snail mail to each other) has offered a chance for investigations and insights into their profession, their personal selves, and each other’s lives.
