As a great lover of David McCandless's book 'Information is Beautiful' it was a real treat when Stefanie Posavec visited Gyro last week to showcase her work. We were bowled over by the amount of detail and research which goes into each of her beautiful project, all of which show data in stunning, visual ways.
My personal favorite was this iPhone app 'MyFry'. It gives viewers an alternative way to interact with Stephen Fry's latest autobiography The Fry Chronicles. Stefanie divided the book into 4 colour coded sections; people, subjects, emotions and 'Fryisms'. Viewer interact with the book in whatever way they please or read the book in chronological order. It gives a looser, more exciting way to read a book and looks stunning at the same time!
