About me & my work:

I formed my New York based design firm in 1993 and have since designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, HBO, and The Guggenheim Museum. Having been nominated five times for the Grammies I finally won one for the Talking Heads boxed set. I have also earned practically every important international design award.

In the beginning of 2008 a comprehensive book titled "Things I have Learned in my Life so far" was published by Abrams. Solo shows on my work have been mounted in New York, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, Paris, Lausanne, Zurich, Vienna, Prague, Cologne, Berlin and Miami. I teach in the graduate department of the School of Visual Art in New York and lecture extensively on all continents.

I received my MFA from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and, as a Fulbright Scholar, a master's degree from Pratt Institute in New York.
