Blurring the boundaries of art, graphic design and branding, Austrian-born designer Stefan Sagmeister is known for his project Things I have learned in my life so far. Sagmeister published 20 maxims—among them, “Complaining is silly…either act or forget” and “Trying to look good limits my life”—in public spaces, rendered in silver duct work, sausage, light itself, and other materials. Sagmeister’s project is to harness design as a tool for social renewal. His studio, Sagmeister Inc., was founded in 1993 and counts among its clients the Rolling Stones, HBO and the Guggenheim Museum. Sagmeister teaches at the School of Visual Art in New York. He visits the IMA to talk about design and bliss. Book signing follows.
This program is presented by the IMA Design Arts Society and made possible by the Evans Woollen Memorial Lecture Fund, with promotional support from AIGA Indianapolis. Buy Tickets Here!
Here is an interview of Sagmeister by DesignBloom.com
“Every seven years, designer Stefan Sagmeister closes his New York studio for a yearlong sabbatical to rejuvenate and refresh their creative outlook. He explains the often overlooked value of time off and shows the innovative projects inspired by his time in Bali.”
One of my fellow classmates forwarded this Stefan Sagmeister video via email at Ball State University. Stefan Sagmeister is a leading designer who is world renowned for his album covers, posters, and recent book of life lessons. Stefan definitely has a fresh way of thinking and has much to provide the graphic design world. You can read a full profile on Stefan Sagmeister here.
