Text Quotes
I didn’t think that personal style had much value in graphic design  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) You’re authentic when you’re honest  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) So whatever I find true for myself, other people might also relate to  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Any excuse to get away from the computer screen is welcome  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) You could say that bad typography brought us the Afghanistan war, the Iraq war, the housing crisis and a good number of other things.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) I am not a religious person myself, but I did look for nature. I had spent my first sabbatical in New York City. Looked for something different for the second one. Europe and the U.S. didn’t really feel enticing because I knew them too well. So Asia it was. The most beautiful landscapes I had seen in Asia were Sri Lanka and Bali.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) There are brands out there in the world that have an incredible influence on the culture. Numerous ones are badly done.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) By far, the most determining factor of any brand is the product or the service the company produces. Branding companies have very rarely any significant influence on that, but it is, of course, in their interest to amplify their importance.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Downtown Toronto is a very good place to talk about the neutrality of modernist architecture. I’m sure this kind of box-building was interesting in the Twenties, Thirties and Forties, but I think it’s absolutely ridiculous to build like this in 2013.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) I had given a presentation on design and happiness for quite a long while at design conferences. I had found thinking about the topic helpful for my own practice, as it forced me to consider the fundamentals, and the feedback from the audience was always enthusiastic.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) My diary entries allow me to keep track of all the things I would like to change about my life  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) People who actually tell stories, meaning people who write novels and make feature films, don’t see themselves as storytellers.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Some people said, ‘Oh you’re going to become a fine artist now and do exhibits and stuff.’ But I have no desire to do that. I really like design and I’m going to stay with it.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) To be stupid and selfish and to have good health are the three requirements for happiness. Though if stupidity is lacking, the others are useless.  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) U.K. psychologist Daniel Nettle thinks of happiness as a carrot on a stick, designed by evolution to show the right way, and also designed so that we will never permanently reach it. We likely would just sit around and eat sweet and fatty foods all day, and that is simply not in the interest of evolution  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) I run a design studio in New York. Every seven years, I close it for one year to pursue some little experiments, things that are always difficult to accomplish during the regular working year. In that year, we are not available for any of our clients. We are totally closed. And as you can imagine, it is a lovely and very energetic time  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) You can have an art experience in front of a Rembrandt... or in front of a piece of graphic design  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Some people said, ‘Oh you’re going to become a fine artist now and do exhibits and stuff.’ But I have no desire to do that. I really like design and I’m going to stay with it  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Complaining is silly. Either act or forget  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) I didn’t think that personal style had much value in graphic design  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Work your ass off. Don’t be an asshole  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Having guts always works out for me  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) To touch somebody’s heart with design  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Ensure it feels like it’s made by humans, for humans  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) Everybody thinks they are right  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) The conventional wisdom in our business is that you have to grow and keep moving to survive. We never grew, always stayed tiny, and it serves us very well over the years, allowing us to pick and choose projects, and keeping our financial independence from our clients. We actually have a rather good track record, because we do select projects carefully. Most of our ideas don’t eat dust but glimpse the light of day because we find it much more helpful to spend some serious time and effort before we start working on a project, rather than suffer through it afterwards  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) My granddad wanted to become a sign painter and designer, but was stopped; my dad would have had a real talent for language, but was stopped. When I expressed a desire to become a graphic designer, I was not stopped  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes) The question I wanted to answer was, could I train my mind to be happy the same way one trains ones body?  (Stefan Sagmeister Quotes)
