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 after undertaking an MA Communication Design at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design, never left (her accent has gone wrong somewhere in the mid-Atlantic, admittedly).
She is an award-winning designer for whom data is her favoured material, with projects ranging from data visualization and information design to commissioned data art for a variety of clients. Her personal work focuses on the visual or physical representation of data derived from language, literature, or scientific topics, often using a hand-crafted approach. This work has been exhibited internationally at major galleries including at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Centro Cultural Banco Do Brasil, Rio de Janeiro; the Science Gallery, Dublin; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, Southbank Centre, Science Museum, and Somerset House, London.

Her husband: sorry for all of the pencils underfoot in the house and the regular weekly grumbles about being shit at drawing
