Event description

Description

Digifest + Meet the Media Guru are proud to present this year's guest speaker: Giorgia Lupi

Giorgia Lupi sees beauty in data.

With her practice, she challenges the impersonality that data communicate, designing engaging visual narratives that re-connect numbers to what they stand for: stories, people, ideas.

Giorgia is an award-winning information designer and a cofounder of Accurat, a data-driven design firm with offices in Milan and New York, where she is the design director. She has a PhD in design from Politecnico di Milano, and is coauthor of the aspirational, hand-drawn data-visualization book Dear Data (Princeton Architectural Press/Penguin Random House).

Her work is included in MoMA’s collection, and the Museum recently commissioned an original, site- specific piece for the exhibition Items: Is Fashion Modern? Giorgia also gave a TED TALK on her humanistic approach to data.

Please note the venue has changed to George Brown College - Waterfront campus (second floor auditorium) at 51 Dockside Drive.
