From an award-winning project comes an inspiring, collaborative book that makes data artistic, personal - and open to all. Each week for a year, Giorgia and Stefanie sent each other a postcard describing what had happened to them during that week around a particular theme. But they didn't write it, they drew it: a week of smiling, a week of apologies, a week of desires. Presenting their fifty-two cards, along with thoughts and ideas about the data-drawing process, Dear Data hopes to inspire you to draw, slow down and make connections with other people, to see the world through a new lens, where everything and anything can be a creative starting point for play and expression.
Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec are two award-winning and internationally recognized information designers with a hand-crafted approach to data visualization. Both expats (Giorgia an Italian in New York, Stefanie an American in London), they had only met twice before they began Dear Data. The project was awarded two Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards and is being exhibited as part of Somerset House's Big Bang Data exhibition, and at London's Science Museum.
