Visualising geopolitics and earth sciences
Listen to Italian designer Irene Stracuzzi with our Designalism Podcast
Irene Stracuzzi is a graphic designer. She focusses on exploring visual strategies to design research and disseminate information in a convincing way, turning complex topics into accessible formats.
Irene: "I see myself as somebody that takes information that's already out there and just propose it in a different way, in a way that's more understandable from a perspective of feeling instead of more a cerebral reading."
Irene doesn't believe in neutrality in her field of work. "I don't think there's possibility of neutrality, because even in the moment that you choose what data to represent, you're making a specific choice. It doesn't mean that this data you're displaying is incorrect or wrong, but visualization always leads to a specific interpretation of what you're showing."
Designalism Podcast portrays the frontrunners at the intersection of design and journalism. By combining methods, tools, and tricks from design and journalism new forms of information arises, and with that new insights and surprising perspectives.
