The Happy Show at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania goes into the mind of Sagmeister - his thought process and his design. At the exhibit, I mostly found myself laughing in agreement at the things he said. His work constantly inspires me both in my design sense and to just put out good work.
I wish i had $2500 to pledge to his (fully funded) kickstarter campaign. I presume that it would be an interesting lunch.
