Stefan Sagmeister Joins PINC!

Stefan Sagmeister tells stories through graphic design and typography. This December, he’ll share those stories with PINCers at the Sarasota Opera House.

Stefan has designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO and the Guggenheim Museum. He’s a two-time GRAMMY Awards winner and has also earned practically every important international design award.

Stefan talks about the larger subjects of life - like happiness or beauty - and how they connect to design. He spoke five times at the official TED, making him one of the three most frequently invited TED speakers.

His books sell in the hundreds of thousands and his exhibitions have been mounted in museums around the world. His exhibit ’The Happy Show' attracted more than 500,000 visitors worldwide and became the most visited graphic design show in history.

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.

We’re excited to welcome Stefan to the stage this year!
