Stefan Sagmeister and his agency, Sagmeister & Walsh, are best known for their album and poster designs—but they’ve also created branding, graphics, and packaging for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO, the Guggenheim Museum, and Time Warner. Sagmeister himself is a longtime collaborator with musicians David Byrne and Lou Reed. He has delivered several TED talks and teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Sagmeister studied graphic design in Vienna and New York. After working with Leo Burnett’s Hong Kong Design Group, he returned to New York in 1993 to work with Tibor Kalman just before Kalman retired from the design business. Sagmeister stayed in New York to found Sagmeister Inc. He has won more than 200 design awards, including The One Show, Art Directors Club, Communication Arts, D&AD, and Grand Prix of the Moscow Art Directors Club Hall of Fame.

This program is free and open to the public.

I just returned from Harold Arts Classic residency where I met some amazing artists and had a relaxing and introspective experience. I highly recommend it!
