Stefan Sagmeister is a man who needs no introduction, so we won’t give him one. We caught up with the Austrian-born, New York-based design legend with a film crew on the lawn outside his hotel in Cape Town, South Aftrica after he’d closed the final day at the inspirational Design Indaba conference…
Sagmeister & Walsh recently shared the work they did for the visual identity of the Jewish Museum. More than a simple corporate identity, they created a real system that can even be adapted for the collaborators’ photos. Via The Dieline.

Aïzone is a luxury department store in Lebanon. Since its inception, it has grown from a single high-end clothing store into a successful, globally recognised chain. After Aïzone approached us in 2010 to rebrand the store and redesign all its store materials, it asked us to try doing its advertising campaigns.

Typography merges with photography in this latest campaign
Sagmeister & Walsh are the latest in the line of excellent designers to collaborate with Moo on a line of cards for their Luxe collection. In typical Sagmeister & Walsh fashion, they took an edgy approach to their design, creating a series of business card-sized messages that are intended “to be handed to anyone you meet who delights or annoys you.” (Fair warning: there is a bit of cursing below. So if that offends you, you may want to avoid scrolling down.)
Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh like to tell it like it is, and they wanted to provide others with an easy way to speak their mind, so they created “Halftone Satisfaction” a collection of seven sets of seven cards. Individual cards are to be handed out to anyone you meet who either delights or annoys you. The lighter the card, the nicer the message: The fronts of the cards are solid black with a message to share, and the backs of the cards have a black dot pattern that builds from mostly white for the brighter sentiments, to a solid black for the darkest of messages. Sagmeister says of the collection, “It’s a test of what kind of person you are…”
I don’t know if I’d actually have the guts to hand out the more angry ones, but they sure would come handy on the subway. All proceeds from the sales go to New York’s Coalition for the Homeless. You can browse the collection and pick up a set for yourself right here starting tomorrow.
