We Had A Hunch Stefan Sagmeister Was A Little Curious And We Think We Were Right

Our first prolonged exposure to Stefan Sagmeister the man happened at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston at the tail end of the rip-roaringly overscheduled AIGA. Our first prolonged exposure to Stefan Sagmeister the designer had happened a few hours earlier while flipping through Design Literacy and thinking we should get some. Literacy, we mean. Another flip-happy graphic design book (there were so many) gave us the infamous Cranbrook lecture poster where he got an assistant to X-acto-carve the necessary (sometimes superfluous) information onto his body and took a picture. An example, we think (with our newfound literacy?), of sensationalism getting slightly confused for design. Still, we’ve never turned down a shot at shock, and we’re intrigued. So were the kids at Tokyo-based Ping Magazine, who were “just too curious to wait until he comes to Japan next!” and interviewed him in his NYC studio. He’s very honest:

Q: Is there any particular meaning for this series to be set up in Lisbon or…

A: No, it’s just because they asked and I always do what I’m asked.

Also discusses handmade typography, being slow, and binging for art. See above.
