Remembering Ivan Chermayeff

Ivan Chermayeff, who has died aged 85, was one of the last of that great generation of designers who together helped establish American graphic design.

Along with the likes of Paul Rand, Lester Beall, Massimo Vignelli and Saul Bass, Chermayeff and his partner Tom Geismar helped set the template for how US graphic design would operate in both the commercial and cultural sphere. For what a graphic design studio could be.
