Stefanie Posavec recently completed a year-long drawing project with Giorgia Lupi called Dear Data, where each week they manually gathered and drew their data on a postcard to send to the other. Stefanie discusses the professional insights she gained spending a year on such an intensive personal data project.
Dear Data was crowned the Best Dataviz Project and the Most Beautiful (the highest accolade) at the 2015 Kantar Information Is Beautiful Awards. It has been featured on FiveThirtyEight, Wired, The Creators Project, Fast Company, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, La Lettura (ITA), and Courrier International (FR), among others. A book of this project will be published in September 2016 by Particular Books (Penguin Random House UK) and Princeton Architectural Press (USA).
