Ivan Chermayeff is one of the world’s great graphic designers. Co-founder of renowned design agency Chermayeff & Geismar, and son of Russian-born architect Serge Chermayeff, he is responsible for some of the world’s most memorable logos and branding including the Mobil ‘O’, National Geographic and Smithsonian.
Cut and Paste includes much iconic graphic design, with a global reach, for corporate clients – a stunning set of posters for Mobil, editorial and exhibition design, signage and brand identity – but this vibrant exhibition is also about the creation of work away from the office, and as the exhibition title suggests, the process of assemblage and a delight in making collages.
“Work that has helped define our times” - Milton Glaser
The exhibition is curated by David Smart, Associate Professor / Senior Lecturer in Graphic Communication, Plymouth University, in association with De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill.
The Cut and Paste exhibition is part of Plymouth Art Weekender. Peninsula Arts is also hosting a music event with jazz legend Mike Westbrook as part of the weekender.
