Read complete interview in Design&Life issue 17.
My name is Stefan Sagmeister, I am an Austrian designer living in New York. When I was 15. I wrote little articles for a small magazine and discovered I like doing the layout for it better. I have been NY now for 18 years altogether. And it's still my favorite place in the world. Last year I lived for 3 months in Berlin that I also quite liked. But I only realized when I was back in New York how much I missed it. I think that maybe my chief love about New York is that so many people are from other countries. And that makes everybody quite open to meet
new people. You see, I come from Austria where everybody is from Austria; most people grew up in Austria. Everybody acquired his or her friends in high school or university. So once you are 30 or 40, you don't need to make new friends. But in New York, everybody comes from somewhere else. So there
are a lot of people who want to know people. If you're willing, you can meet a lot of people.
