Stefan Sagmeister formed the New York-based Sagmeister Inc. in 1993 and has since designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO, and the Guggenheim Museum. Having been nominated eight times, he finally won two Grammys for the Talking Heads and Brian Eno & David Byrne package designs. He has also earned practically every important international design award. In 2008, a comprehensive book on Sagmeister, "Things I have learned in my life so far," was published by Abrams. Solo shows on his work have been mounted in Paris, Zurich, Vienna, Prague, Cologne, Berlin, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul and Miami. The Happy Show, an exhibition that presented typographic investigations of a series of maxims, or rules to live by, culled from Sagmeister’s diary, attracted more than half a million visitors worldwide and became the most visited graphic design show in history. Sagmeister teaches in the graduate department of the School of Visual Art in New York and lectures extensively on all continents. In 2012 designer Jessica Walsh became a partner, and the company was renamed into Sagmeister & Walsh. A native of Austria, he received his MFA from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and, as a Fulbright Scholar, a master’s degree from Pratt Institute in New York. http://sagmeister.com/ http://www.uww.edu/cac/artist
