Sagi Haviv, born June 1974 in Israel, is a partner and designer at Chermayeff & Geismar, the Manhattan-based studio that needs little introduction.
Sagi will kindly answer questions from Logo Design Love readers, so if there’s anything you want to ask, leave your question in a comment or message.
Here’s a very brief background on the man.
Among his projects for the firm are the logo designs and identity systems for the Library of Congress, National Parks of New York Harbor, Radio Free Europe, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the fashion brand Armani Exchange.
Sagi designed the award-winning animation “Logomotion,” (YouTube video embedded below) a ten-minute tribute to the firm’s famous trademarks that was not only the first animated trademark sequence of such scope, but also introduced a new approach to showcasing a firm’s portfolio.
Other motion graphics work includes the opening sequence for the Emmy Award winning PBS documentary series Carrier.
Sagi joined Chermayeff & Geismar in 2003 after graduating from The Cooper Union School of Art in New York City, where he won several prestigious awards and fellowships including the 2002 Dan Friedman Prize, the 2003 Art Director’s Club Scholarship Prize, and the 2003 Lubalin Fellowship.
In 2008, he became the third principal partner at the firm, and the youngest in its history.
