Jennifer Daniel is an illustrator, graphic designer, author, mother of twin toddlers, and regular contributor to the New York Times and the New Yorker. As a Creative Director at Google and former graphics editor at the New York Times she explores both verbal and written language as a means of personal expression and regularly questions how she justifies contributing to capitalism. Acclaimed for her conceptual, clever, and content-driven approach to illustration and writing, her work has also been widely published. Her latest book, The Origin of Almost Everything, explores the universe through charts and diagrams, data, and facts. Fast Company calls her “a genius at information design” and her latest book, “the best-looking science book ever created.” Her brother calls her “annoying”. Jennfier’s work has been recognized by the Art Directors Club, D&AD (Design & Art Direction), Malofiej, American Illustration, the Society of Publication Designers, Society of Illustrators, and the AIGA.
