Sagmeister Talks About Latest Episode of Noisey CD Design

Widely considered one of the most innovative CD designers of the last 20 years, Stefan Sagmeister tells the stories behind some of his most iconic works for artists like Lou Reed, Talking Heads, Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones, and more in the latest episode of Noisey Design.


Noisey is excited to debut the newest episode of Noisey Design, Noisey’s series on the artists and designers behind music’s most iconic album covers.

Made possible by Microsoft Surface, this edition of Noisey Design focuses on the work of legendary designer Stefan Sagmeister.

With album covers for The Rolling Stones’ Bridges to Babylon Everything and Lou Reed’s Ecstasy under his belt, Sagmeister is responsible for some of the best and most memorable album covers in recent memory. A two-time Grammy winner and pioneer of CD packaging as an artistic medium, Stefan tells Host and VICE Head of Design Matt Schoen the stories behind some of his most influential works.

VICE started Noisey back in 2011, criss-crossing the globe documenting the year in music from heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands who usually play for their girlfriends and moms. Since then, it has grown into one of the most unique and successful video-driven music sites on the planet.

In 2012, Noisey teamed with YouTube as a premium content provider, and built out a series of shows that take a completely fresh take on the world of music. As an editorial resource, reaches millions of people a month, and has become a go-to source for weird music news, artist-sourced content, and VICE’s signature offbeat coverage.

Noisey throws parties and shows worldwide, hosts innovative online listening parties for new records, and produces videos for the best artists in the world, like MIA, Die Antwoord, A$AP Rocky, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Noisey is more than just a music site—music is the lens with which we explore youth culture all over the world.
