I can’t believe i haven’t even mentioned my all time favorite graphic designer. Introduced to me by our tutors at college i was completely unaware of sagmeister and his infectious style of the multi-skilled man! From creating stories out of sausages, to designing for the Rolling Stones to cutting into his body to produce a lecture poster for his tour Sagmeister is a true hero of our contemporary design world. He is also very helpful for design students looking to make their way into the design world with a similar vision for the all out style he has come so well known for. My Favorite piece though, is his poster i mentioned earlier. Cutting into his body using a tattoo artist to perform the work, Sagmeister has the details of his tour carved into his flesh, thus showing us the metaphoric pain that is endured when travelling along the path of design. What a hero!
