The Power of Time Off

By  |  1 Comment

Every seven years, designer Stefan Sagmeister closes his New York studio for a yearlong sabbatical to rejuvenate and refresh their creative outlook. He explains the often overlooked value of time off and shows the innovative projects inspired by his time in Bali.

Stefan Sagmeister is no mere commercial gun for hire. Sure, he’s created eye-catching graphics for clients including the Rolling Stones and Lou Reed, but he pours his heart and soul into every piece of work. His design work is at once timeless and of the moment, and his painstaking attention to the smallest details creates work that offers something new every time you look at it. While a sense of humor invariably surfaces in his designs, Sagmeister is nonetheless very serious about his work; his intimate approach and sincere thoughtfulness elevate his design. A genuine maverick, Sagmeister achieved notoriety in the 1990s as the designer who self-harmed in the name of craft: He created a poster advertising a speaking engagement by carving the salient details onto his torso.

    – Excellent suggestions, Ladies!I have autlacly been in Coast and tried on about 20 dresses. No joke. Sadly the ones that I liked didn’t like me, they were just not right for my shape. Also since the sales are on they didn’t always have my size or are pretty low on stock in general. I have now ordered one online to try on at home that I didn’t find in the shop. Fingers crossed!Deb I would never sneer! This is exactly the kind of advice I am looking for. :)July 6, 2011 9:03 pm
