Stefan Sagmeister

Born in Austria, Sagmeister moved to NYC in 1987 to attend Pratt on a Fulbright scholarship. His work mixes sexuality with humor and always tries to push the envelop of indecency. Sagmeister’s most notable work is a poster he designed for AIGA in 1999. The designer employed one of his assistants to carve the text of the event into his skin using an x-acto knife, he then photographed the end result. [Design Museum]
