dress code celebrates chermayeff & geismar’s 60 years of logos

new york-based production company dress code pay homage to iconic logo designers chermayeff & geismar & haviv in its latest video, chronicling their works throughout the decades. back in 2010, designboom interviewed tom geismar where he explains, ‘I have always been attracted to reductive design, trying to find the essence of an idea, and then finding an imaginative way to clearly express it.’ for those unfamiliar with their work, chermayeff & geismar are behind the logos for NBC, chase, PBS, showtime, pan AM, univision, national geographic, NYU, the EPA, MoMA, among many others.

dress code honors chermayeff & geismar & haviv‘s collaboration in this video, which includes, sadly, the last interview with ivan before his passing. at one point, ivan recounts the time david rockerfeller approached him to design chase bank’s logo: ‘symbols don’t make it clear what they’re doing, they make it clear who they are. the less they say, the better!’
