Giorgia Lupi is an award-winning information designer, author, and co-founder of Accurat, a data-driven design firm where she serves as design director. She is also the co-author of Dear Data, an aspirational hand-drawn data visualization book. Lupi’s work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, where in 2017, she was commissioned to do an original site-specific art piece. Lupi has won numerous awards, including the “Lezioni di Design” Prize at Milan’s Design Week in 2016; she has been featured in The New York Times, Guardian, Washington Post, and many other major media outlets. With an M-Arch from FAF in Ferrara, Italy and a PhD in Design from Politecnico di Milano, Lupi’s data visualization process is driven by opposing forces: analysis and intuition, logic and beauty, numbers, and images.
