If you feel overwhelmed by bad news, this DLD Munich talk is for you. In a presentation brimming positivity, Stefan Sagmeister shows why there there’s actually much reason to be optimistic about humanity’s trajectory in a historical context.
An internationally renowned graphic designer, Sagmeister has worked for the Rolling Stones, Brian Eno, HBO and the Guggenheim Museum, among others.
His talk is a tour-de-force of creativity, arts and culture, which illustrates in how many areas progress has given us “beautiful numbers” – from the representation of women in politics to higher levels of literacy and dropping suicide rates.
Watch the talk – and smile.
