There’s something romantic about writing a postcard, even if it’s filled with data points and undecipherable sketches. Dear Data, a project by Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec really struck a chord, as their UK – US written correspondence is an interesting window into the world of a data thinker.
Both women live parallel lives in that they’re the same age, only children, transplants in a new country and work in data using a hand-crafted illustrative approach. Have a look to explore – the drawings have a beautiful morse code feeling to them and share more than meets the eye. Would you ever correspond with a likeminded pen pal?
