Stefan sagmeister and jessica walsh dating
He has a very postmodernism approach to design and the creative industry, this means he created work for a more personal reason, it doesn’t nessacerily have to have a purpose but the theory and the message within the work will be very strong.This postmodernist approach means he very rarely works for commercial use because to him they have no substance and are too restricting.Walsh’s heist to quit her job at Print magazine is quite shocking, being a partner in a well established design studio is most designers dreams however she had only just met Sagameister and he had only saw a selection of her work, they didn’t know each other well enough to make such a massive decision.then to pose naked with each other for the announcement is very out of the ordinary and makes me think Walsh has an obsession with Sagmeister, which is influential in different ways, she has inspired people to take a risk and trust your instincts, however it could also influence people to not meet their hero in the designing world because they may not like your work and live up to your expectations, Walsh took a massive risk.Within their new studio Sagameister & Walsh they can choose what clients and briefs they want to do and they also work on a lot of their own self driven projects.as a team and as individuals they always question everything they do to develop their skills as designers and people.
In 2012, after Sagmeisters enlightenment in Bali he made a change in his professional career he was already the owner of his own design studio and was in the process of creating his new work style.
Jessica Walsh at the time a new up and coming graphic designer emailed Sagmeister to see if he would look through her portfolio, they met and within 5 minutes of looking through her portfolio he said ‘“When do you want to come work for me?
” She quit her job at Print the next day.’(AIGA | the professional association for design, 2013).
They have other people working for them within their studio however they are the main art directors, they hire people that have different interests and skills and people who are looking to develop into different areas in order to keep their studio relevent and ever changing and developing with the technology based society.
They hire people that have different skills within design so they aren’t limited in what resources and skill sets they have as a studio as this would affect their outcome of projects.
