Julia Mia Stirnemann is a graphic designer and an artistic researcher living and working in Zürich. She holds an MA in Communication Design and her current assignments include her PhD studies at the Bern University of the Arts, design and consulting services under the name of her own studio, Juliamia Grafik, and development of projects related to her research application, the Worldmapgenerator.
And this project is how we stumbled across Julia Mia and her work. It’s also the reason why we’re very exited to have her with us for the next Hacks / Hackers meetup. The application allows researchers, journalists or travellers to easily create beautiful and customized maps of the world. The web-based application is the result of a research project brought to life by herself in and the Bern University of the Arts, in cooperation with the design and technology studios Dreipol and 51st Floor.
In her talk, Julia Mia will walk us through the thinking behind the project, show us how the application works and touch on some things on the horizon.
