Stefan Sagmeister formed the New York-based Sagmeister Inc. in 1993 and announced in 2012 that Jessica Walsh was joining as a partner and the studio would be renamed Sagmeister & Walsh.


Sagmeister has designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO, and the Guggenheim Museum. Having been nominated eight times he finally won two Grammies for the Talking Heads and Brian Eno & David Byrne package designs. He has also earned practically every important international design award.


In 2008 a comprehensive book titled "Things I Have Learned in My Life So Far" was published by Abrams. Solo shows on Sagmeister Inc.'s work have been mounted in Zurich, Vienna, New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Osaka, Prague, Cologne, Seoul, Miami, and Philadelphia.


He teaches in the graduate department of the School of Visual Art in New York and lectures extensively on all continents.


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.
