Designer’s masochism

The embodiment of the task leads the designer to feel pain. The more he put energy in his work the more pain he will feel but the more pleasure he will withdraw from it, so the pleasure of the designer is a masochist. “No Pain, no gain”.

By the way..the graphics are real scars on the body of Stefan Sagmaister, made by his assistant, great stuff Dennis..

    Sagmeister rocks. Beautiful thought provoking, and sometimes provocative work. Working on the fine line between art and graphic design. He’s right up there with Glaser, Rand and Crouwel.
