Publisher Comments:

'
This book began as a list designer Stefan Sagmeister made in his diary under the title Things I have learned in my life so far, which includes statements such as \"Worrying solves nothing\" and \"Trying to look good limits my life.\" The list reveals something that is profoundly true: Although human beings have been pursuing happiness for countless generations, it is not so easily achieved. And we need constant reminders to keep us on the right path.

With the support of his clients, Sagmeister transformed these sentences into typographic works, from billboards in France to sign-toting inflatable monkeys on the streets of Scotland. Accompanied by essays from design historian Steven Heller, Guggenheim chief curator Nancy Spector, and UK psychologist Daniel Nettle, as well as Sagmeister\'s own words, the series is revealed as a complex blend of personal revelation, art, and design--an eclectic mix of visual audacity and sound advice.

This book consists of 15 unbound signatures in a laser-cut slipcase. Shuffling the sequence of the signatures will produce 15 different covers.

Synopsis:

Created to accompany an international traveling exhibition, Another Book about Promotion and Sales Material explores the work of one of the worlds most famous graphic designers—Stefan Sagmeister. Divided into four sections, and including commissioned work from ten years of graphic design, this book explores how Sagmeister creates greater awareness for corpora­tions, his friends, his own work, and cultural events and products.

Showcasing a wide range of work, from a Talking Heads boxed set, to print ads for Levis, to a wedding invitation for close friends, this book includes exclusive images from the studio archive as well as Sagmeisters commentary on his work, which contains his characteristic wit and insight. The result is a funny, revealing, and intimate look at the cutting-edge work of a graphic design master.

Synopsis:

Just as film, art, music, and literature have the power to move people, Stefan Sagmeister's innovative work shows that graphic design, too, can cut to the emotional quick. His desire is to transform stale thinking, and Sagmeister: Made You Look does just that.

Compelling, honest, and intensely personal, Made You Look covers 20 years of Sagmeister's graphic design. With a text by design historian Peter Hall and annotated with Sagmeister's own writing, the book features images from the studio archive, as well as specific influences and reference points for his projects and ideas. Fully illustrated with a red PVC slipcase and silver-gilded pages, this monograph is a compilation of practically all the work Sagmeister and his studio ever designed up to 2001, even the bad stuff
