For a 1999 AIGA Detroit lecture, Sagmeister had his assistant carve the details of his talk into his torso, which he described as an attempt to “visualize the pain that seems to accompany most of my design projects.” The poster Sagmeister created as a result is now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Design Museum, London.
