Stefan Sagmeister - Graphic design god - talks - at the TED 2004 conference
Analyzing a list of things that have made him happy, graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister realized that almost half of the items were in some way related to design.
In this intensely personal talk, he shares the details of some of those moments, and gives props to three artists whose work has had a positive impact on his world.
Concluding with some examples of his own work, Sagmeister offers a real insight into his aesthetic and philosophy of work -- and life.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a
conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope
has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world's
most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their
lives (in 18 minutes).
