Speak Data

© Vito Maria Grattacaso / LUZ and Pentagram

Today data is everywhere. But what does data really mean, and how can we extract real value from it in our daily lives? In this illustrated talk, information designer and Pentagram partner Giorgia Lupi discusses our new data reality and “data humanism,” her unique philosophy for understanding and working with data.

Surveying her diverse work over the last decade, Lupi introduces her distinctive approach to data visualization by looking at the human side of data and offers a look into the far-reaching applications of her work in data and design, from corporate to institutional to personal.

Giorgia Lupi encourages creatives (and non!) to harness data as a design tool while respecting human privacy and experience in their output.

Join us on Tuesday, June 22 at 4 PM EDT to hear from award-winning designer and artist Giorgia Lupi and learn to “Speak Data” with us!
