Giorgia moved from Milan, Italy to New York in 2012 and is still in her honeymoon with the city.
She is an information designer.
Her work in information visualization frequently crosses the divide between digital and print, exploring visual models and metaphors to represent dense and rich data-driven stories.
Her work and research challenges the impersonality that data might communicate, designing engaging visual narratives able to connect numbers to what they stand for: knowledge, behaviors, people.
She obtained a PhD cum Meritum in information Design at Milan Politecnico in 2014.
She is co-founder and design director at Accurat, a data-driven research, design and innovation firm based in Milan and New York.
Stefanie moved from Denver, Colorado to London in 2004 and never left (her accent has gone wrong somewhere in the mid-Atlantic, admittedly).
After receiving an MA Communication Design from Central St. Martins, she worked as a book cover designer but eventually went freelance to focus on data-related design, with work ranging from data visualization and information design to commissioned data art for a variety of clients. Her personal work focuses on the visual representation of data gathered from language, literature, or science. She likes to count and calculate by hand with her trusty mechanical pencil (Rotring, in case you're wondering).
