Stefanie Posavec

I'm a designer, artist, and author focused on creating playful, accessible and human-scaled approaches to communicating data.

My data-driven work has been exhibited internationally at major galleries including the V&A, the Design Museum, Somerset House, and the Wellcome Collection (London), the Centre Pompidou (Paris), and MoMA (New York). I was Facebook's first data-artist-in-residence at their Menlo Park campus, and recent art residencies include the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London. My work is also in the permanent collection of MoMA and was nominated for the London Design Museum’s ‘Designs of the Year’ competition in 2016.

Also, my work has been featured in the The Financial Times, The Guardian, The Observer, Design Week, WIRED UK, The Independent, BBC Culture (all UK), WIRED, Smithsonian Magazine, Communication Arts, Fast Company, The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Brainpickings, Coolhunting, Quartz (all US), amongst others.

My latest illustrated book (I am a book. I am a portal to the universe., co-authored with Miriam Quick) was named one of the Financial Times’s ‘Best Books of the Year 2020’ and the winner of the Royal Society’s Young People’s Book Prize 2021. This is a huge honour for me and my co-author Miriam, as while the prize's shortlist was selected by adults, the final decision was made by 11,500 young people and schoolchildren from the UK.

I have also co-authored two books that emphasise a handmade, personal approach to data: Dear Data and the journal Observe, Collect, Draw!
