20 May 2016
We are delighted to announce that Denver-born and London-based data designer Stefanie Posavec to deliver closing keynote at our Autumn conference in London.
Stefanie is a designer for whom data is her favoured material, with projects ranging from data visualisation and information design to commissioned data art.
Her personal work focuses on nontraditional representations of data derived from language, literature, or scientific topics, often using a hand-crafted approach.
Her work has been exhibited internationally at major galleries including MoMA and The Storefront for Art & Architecture (New York), CCBB (Rio de Janeiro), the Science Gallery (Dublin), the V&A, the Science Museum, the Southbank Centre, and Somerset House (London), and Milan Design Week.
Stefanie recently completed the year-long Dear Data drawing project with Giorgia Lupi, deemed the Best Dataviz Project and the Most Beautiful (the highest accolade) at the 2015 Kantar Information Is Beautiful Awards. A book of this project will be published in September 2016 by Particular Books (Penguin Random House UK) and Princeton Architectural Press (USA).
Design It; Build It Conference London will take place at The Royal Institution of Great Britian on October 21st 2016, with speakers covering both design and development topics over the course of a packed day.
