The Man Behind Some Of The Most Recognizable Logos Of Our Time Has Passed Away
5 months ago

Ivan Chermayeff is a name you may not know, but chances are you have a piece of his art in your wallet. 

His firm, Chermayeff & Geismar, are responsible for the logo designs of companies as huge as NBC, Chase Manhattan, Mobil Oil and institutions like the Smithsonian. Chermayeff passed away at the age of 85, leaving behind a body of work that is astonishing in its ubiquity. Let's take a quick peek at what he created. 

It's no exaggeration to say that every American has seen something this man created, which is a staggering thought.

The best tributes to the man include his massive portfolio, but people found their own ways to celebrate his legacy.

There's an elegant, minimalist simplicity in his iconic body of work, which set the tone for sixty years of public artistic design. Rest in peace, good sir.
