Giorgia Lupi sees beauty in data. With her practice, she challenges the impersonality that data communicates, designing engaging visual narratives that re-connect numbers to what they stand for: stories, people, ideas. Lupi co-founded Accurat, a data-driven design firm with offices in Milan and New York, where she is the creative director. After receiving her master’s in architecture, she earned a PhD in design at Politecnico di Milano. She is co-author of Dear Data, an aspirational hand-drawn data visualization book. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Her TED talk on her humanistic approach to data has over one million views. She lives in New York.
