Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv

Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, founded in 1957, is a legendary branding and graphic design firm known worldwide for creating some of the most famous visual identities of all time, including those for Chase bank, NBC, Mobil Oil, PBS, Showtime, Barneys New York, Pan Am, NYU and the Smithsonian Institution, among dozens of others.

By the mid 2000’s the traditional media landscape within which Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv thrived for decades had changed dramatically. As a result, the frequency and profile of the coverage of the firm and its work had dropped substantially.

Nutter Media was brought on in the fall of 2008 to create a new presence for the firm on the 21st century media playing field. As a result, Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv today has a powerful presence in the graphic design, branding and business media arena – from Bloomberg Businessweek and Fast Co. to Designboom and Brand New -- with regular media coverage of the firm itself, the partners and its projects, and is reestablished as the premiere visual branding firm in the 21st century.

“Over the years, through his ongoing PR campaigns for the firm, the partners and its projects; his savvy campaigns to expose the firm to millions on social media; and his conceptualization of and PR campaign for the firm’s book Identify, Christopher has ensured that Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv is established firmly in the media as a cutting edge leader on the forefront of visual branding and graphic design. As a truly well-rounded expert in PR, branding, strategy and writing; a professional who educated himself thoroughly about our industry; and someone who is always available when we need him, Christopher is truly a rare find.”
