Meet Our Keynote Speaker: Stefan Sagmeister

The keynote addresses are always a highlight of Alt and today we're thrilled to announce this year's three speakers who will be sure to inspire. The second speaker we'll be honored to hear from is reknowned graphic designer and typographer, Stefan Sagmeister (@sagmeisterwalsh). In his address he'll explore the possibilities to achieve happiness as a designer, share his tactics to make sure his work remains a calling without deteriorating into a job, and showcase some of his design pieces that induce happiness in the audience. 

Stefan Sagmeister was born in Austria and lives and works in New York at his design firm, Sagmeister & Walsh Inc. He has worked for the Rolling Stones, The Talking Heads, Lou Reed, The Guggenheim Museum and Levis. Exhibitions on Sagmeister's work have been mounted in New York, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, Paris, Lausanne, Zurich, Vienna, Prague, Cologne and Berlin. He is a two-time Grammy Award winner for his album package designs and author of the book, Things I have learned in my life so far

Stefan's presentation absolutely can't be missed!

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
