사그마이스터는 오스트리아 University of Applied Arts in Vienna 그래픽디자인 석사 과정을 거쳐 미국 뉴욕 Pratt Institute에서 풀브라이트 장학생으로 석사학위를 수여 받았다. 그는 1993년 뉴욕에 스튜디오 사그마이스터를 설립한 후 지금까지 Rolling Stones, Talking Heads, Lou Reed와 같은 뮤지션들을 위한 그래픽 및 패키지를 디자인해왔다. 그는 여러 국제 디자인상을 수상하였고, 다섯 차례 그래미상 후보로 지명되기도 하였다.
사그마이스터의 작업은 취리히, 비엔나, 뉴욕, 베를린, 도쿄, 오사마, 프라하, 쾰른, 서울 등의 도시에서 전시된 바 있다.


Sagmeister received his MFA in graphic design from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and, as a Fulbright Scholar, a master's degree from Pratt Institute in New York. He formed the New York-based Sagmeister Inc. in 1993 and has since then, designed graphics and packaging for the Rolling Stones, Talking Heads and Lou Reed. He was nominated five times for the Grammy awards and finally won one for the Talking Heads boxed set. He has also won many international design awards.

In 2001, a monograph about his work titled Sagmeister Made You Look was published by Booth-Clibborn Editions and became a bestseller. His work with Sagmeister Inc. has been seen in solo shows in Zürich, Vienna, New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Osaka, Prague, Cologne and Seoul. Stefan has tried to keep his studio small (himself, Matthias Ernstberger and one intern). He lectures extensively on all continents.
