Awards & Recognitions

To use a word like "legend" in connection with Stefan Sagmeister does not seem too far a stretch. It’s not only that this Austrian designer has received nearly every important international design award, along with a Grammy for his design of the Talking Heads boxed set (and 5 more nominations). Or his diverse range of clients, from Lou Reed and the Rolling Stones to HBO and the Guggenheim Museum. Or the countless solo shows on the work of his New York City design company, Sagmeister Inc, in every major design capital across the world.

Sagmeister received a Grammy Award in 2005 in the Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package category for art directing Once in a Lifetime box set by Talking Heads.

He received a second Grammy Award for his design of the "David Byrne and Brian Eno" album "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today" in the Grammy Award for Best Recording Package category on January 31, 2010.

In 2005, Sagmeister won the Communications Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for exceptional work in graphic design.

In 2009, Stefan Sagmeister is awarded the Lucky Strike Designer Award for his lifetime achievements.

In 1994 he was nominated for a Grammy Award for the album cover for H. P. Zinker’s "Mountains of Madness".
