Although Ivan Chermayeff rotates through various mediums, his strengths as a designer and illustrator are equally present in his collage and printmaking methods. A cofounder of the design firm Chermayeff & Geismar, credited with producing the now-iconic American logos for companies such as NBC, PBS, Mobile Oil, and The Museum of Modern Art, Chermayeff simplifies an infinite breadth of information into single symbols. His collages require a same sense of witty assemblage, where gathered information, like scraps of paper, stamps, and Polaroid pictures combine as fragmented clues to a greater message. The collages often take the shape of people, whose facial features are born of scraps and daily ephemera. They are amusing and infinitely thought-provoking; as Chermayeff has said, “Collages make it possible for everything to be something else.”
