Hey folks,

It’s time for another project-centric episode, and we finally talk about one of our favorite projects of the year — “Dear Data”  by the most fabulous tag team of data illustrators around: Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec.

Their year-long project is about how “two women who switched continents get to know each other through the data they draw and send across the pond” and consists of 104 hand–drawn postcards all of which document one week of their lives. How much they cursed, laughed, read, smiled at strangers, … — all of this is documented in inventive, charming and very analogue ways.

Learn all about the project — how they started it, what they learned, and how it will live on — in the episode.
