Information designer, data artist, lecturer

I’m Tiziana Alocci – an Italian award-winning information designer and lecturer based in London. I have worked commercially for over a decade as an information designer, collaborating with creative studios, brands, and organisations worldwide. In this capacity, my scope of work spans from interactive data experiences to printed editorial data visualisations, with clients including the BBC, the British Library, Corriere della Sera, Wired UK, and the Open Data Institute (ODI).

In 2017, I co-founded Market Cafe Magazine, the world’s first independent zine chronicling the progression of data visualisation practice globally. The publication, which is sold in over 20 independent bookstores globally, has featured some of the world’s leading figures in data and information design and in 2017 was recognised at the Kantar ‘Information Is Beautiful’ Awards with a Gold Award. This editorial work partners an established career in public speaking and lecturing. I have been an Associate Lecturer at the University of the Arts London since 2018, amongst other international guest lecturing posts at Ravensbourne University London (UK), Chelsea College of Arts (UK), Hyper Island (Sweden), Winchester School of Art (UK), Data Ninja School (Italy), Università di Bologna (Italy), ArtEZ University of the Arts (The Netherlands), and speak regularly at prominent information design industry events internationally.

Born and raised between the sea and the “vicoli” of Genoa, I live and work in East London where I run my studio playing with pixels, data, and electronic music, regularly falling in love with new forms of art.

Academic methodology

My philosophy towards academic frameworks diverges from mainstream systems, believing in a categorical right to free access to education, and a non-hierarchical approach to knowledge-sharing. My lecturing style promotes collaborative learning and eradicating entrenched boundaries that stifle experimentation. I encourage mistake-making and the faceted analysis that is born from that process. I bring this ethos to my position as Associate Lecturer at the University of the Arts London – an institution ranked second in the world for Art and Design as per the 2021 QS World University Rankings®. In doing so, I promote a culture of dialogue, of historical interpretation, and of cultivating a safe domain for intellectual and practical experimentation.

Referrals
Having worked in the information visualisation industry for over a decade, I’ve met several talented colleagues and collaborators along the way. Rest assured that if ever my schedule is at full capacity, I’d be happy to point you in the direction of some trusted fellow designers who could help you out.
