Born in London, Ivan Chermayeff (b.1932- d. 2017) was educated at Harvard University, the Institute of Design in Chicago, and the Yale University School of Art and Architecture. In 1960 he and Tom Geismer founded the design firm Chermayeff and Geismer Associates, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Chermayeff has served on numerous important design committees, including the Yale Council Committee on Art, and is a trustee of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and a past president of the American Institute of Graphic Arts.

Influenced by the Bauhaus legacy of utilitarian order, Chermayeff has developed unique approaches to modernist graphic design that have gone beyond what he learned from that German school. As he explains, "I like to incorporate handwriting and the physical practice of putting things down . . . nails, tacks, tape, stickers and things that hold other things together on a temporary basis. . . . My tendency is to reveal that relationship rather than to disguise it."

Chermayeff's poster designs for civic and cultural organizations and numerous corporate clients, as well as his designs for book covers, have been exhibited in the United States, Japan, and Europe. Among his many awards are the Industrial Art Medal of the American Institute of Architects and the Gold Medal of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

This piece is from our large art collection, assembled over a more than 50-year time span. The collection consists of original paintings lithographs, photographs, drawings, etchings, and other types of prints, as well as some mixed media pieces, all of which we'll eventually be listing on Craigslist Marketplace. As our main concern is finding new, appreciative homes for the pieces, we're pricing them to sell, at prices well below fair market value. Thank you for visiting our listings, and please don't hesitate to message us if we may be of further help.
