I just received an email from the co-producer of a great website called Zoom-In Online…. She mentioned my post a while ago about the fantastic Hillman Curtis film documenting Stefan Sagmeister’s ongoing project Things I have Learnt in My Life so Far, and wrote to let me know that Zoom-In Online recently posted not one but THREE videos covering an event called ‘Design Lecture Series’ in San Francisco, featuring Stefan Sagmeister!
I had previously embedded one of the films here, but the audio was a little distracting, so I have removed it… however please do visit the following links to watch these little films, they really are worth a look. Here’s the first film… The other 2 films can be seen here and here.
What a great find! These films offer a terrific insight into Stefan’s work and his background – lots of footage of Stefan himself talking to camera, slick editing, and cute animated segments throughout that clarify the chronology of Stefan’s career to date. The films are edited into perfect bite-sized chunks – just the right length to watch at work with the headphones on (shhhh!).
The more I see of Stefan Sagmeister, the more I like him. Clearly he’s an incredible designer, and is famed for thinking outside the square, but also, he just seems like such a nice guy! Plus – I can’t imagine a more endearing accent… (not entirely relevant to his creative output, but you know).
Zoom-In Online offer daily coverage of the latest happenings in culture, entertainment and technology through regularly published videos, podcasts and blogs… well worth a thorough browse.
