Everybody who is honest is interesting.

Stefan Sagmeister

Austrian graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister is known for the album covers he has masterminded for artists such as the Rolling Stones and Lou Reed. Sagmeister has said he became a designer after failing as a musician and journalist: That honesty led him to a Fulbright Scholarship at the Pratt Institute in New York City and a 2005 Grammy Award for art direction. His words encourage us to be candid about our motivations and goals, because authenticity can be the best compass to happiness.
