How do some of New York City's biggest graphic designers say "happy birthday?" Why, with an oversized card, of course!
2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the New York chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), the nation's premier professional design organization. To celebrate, this long-standing force behind the Big Apple's design scene asked 30 design luminaries to capture their experience with AIGA/NY in the form of a limited edition poster.
Ivan Chermayeff, Principal of Chermayeff & Geismar, honors the organization with a colorful stack of bubbly, block letters in his distinctly bold style. While also an accomplished painter and illustrator, Chermayeff is perhaps best known for his iconic logos, namely the NBC, Mobil, Merck, Armani Exchange, Smithsonian Institution, PBS, Showtime, NYU, Barneys New York, Chase Bank, National Geographic, and Univision. Made in New York City.
