Stefan Sagmeister is an avant-garde leader in the design field, executing projects for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Sagmeister explores the vast and illusive subjects of our lives, like happiness or beauty, how they connect to design, and what that actually means to our everyday lives. A native of Austria, Sagmeister is a principal partner along with Jessica Walsh at the New York City design firm Sagmeister & Walsh. The firm creates brand identities, commercials, websites, apps, films, books, and objects for clients and is a full-service studio creating strategy and design across all platforms.
Presented in partnership with SAIC’s Department of Visual Communication Design. Additional support provided by the Architecture & Design Society at the Art Institute of Chicago.
