@stefansagmeister is a designer and art director from Austria who currently lives and works in New York City. His designs are rooted in disorienting images and self-defining aphorisms. With apparent ease, Sagmeister morphs taking on various skins, from graphic designer to conceptual typographer to performance artist.
When the mood strikes, he returns to being a designer, and a completely new cycle of transformation commences.
