stefan sagmeister live Q&A on skype

austria-born, new york -based designer stefan sagmeister is known for his tactile approach to graphic design, emphasizing material experimentation rather than digital rendering in works ranging from CD packaging and photographs to wall-scale installations and his own realtime website. design, sagmeister insists, ‘needed guts from the creator and still carries the ghost of these guts in the final execution.‘

on wednesday, january 25th at 6 PM EST,

sagmeister will participate in a live Q&A answer session via skype in an event organized by the art institute of california, orange county.
