Beside her was Stefan Sagmeister, also naked, save for a fetching pair of grey socks.

'Nineteen years after the founding of Sagmeister Inc., we are renaming the company to Sagmeister & Walsh,' announced the card, and Twitter promptly exploded in a frenzy of activity as designers spread the word. For one reason or another, it's fair to say that the method of announcing the phenomenal achievement of Walsh – at just 25 – becoming a partner at one of the world's most iconic studios became public knowledge pretty fast.
