    The Data We Don’t See

    August 28, 2019

    Giorgia Lupi is an award-winning information designer and partner at Pentagram. She is an advocate for data humanism, an innovative approach to data visualization that goes beyond the trend of cool, surface-level infographics. I think this quote from a recent interview with her sums up the idea nicely:

    I feel that data visualization shouldn’t be a simplification of reality; the visualization should make reality more accessible.

    Giorgia Lupi’s work is fascinating and intimate in that it embraces the complexities of humanity. For a wonderful example, I recommend checking out her process on a recent project, Bruises.

    I deeply believe in Giorgia Lupi’s goal to make data faithfully representative of human nature. In our increasingly complex and divided world, this kind of information design feels so necessary.
