Laine's Loves... The Happy Film

If you don’t know the name Stefan Sagmeister then you’ll have surely seen his work, or his massive influence on his field of graphic design. His trademark real life typographic messages litter his debut film, but at its heart it’s an extremely open documentary not so much about how to find joy, but about his own love life.

Laine’s Loves… The Happy Film

If you don’t know the name Stefan Sagmeister then you’ll have surely seen his work, or his massive influence on his field of graphic design. His trademark real life typographic messages litter his debut film, but at its heart it’s an extremely open documentary not so much about how to find joy, but about his own love life. In an attempt to get happier after a break-up Stefan tries three months of therapy, three months of meditation and three months of anti-depressants to see which works better. So what worked best? Apparently falling in love and making his massive The Happy Show exhibition for Philadelphia’s ICA. All in all it’s lovely to spend a couple of hours around this creative genius and his life, which he lays bare for us in its highs and lows.

You can check out his frequently delightful work here.
