Sagi Haviv, born June 1974 in Israel, is a partner and designer at Chermayeff & Geismar, the Manhattan-based studio that needs little introduction.
Sagi has kindly agree to answer questions from Logo Design Love readers, so if there’s anything you want to ask, leave a comment or message.
Among his projects for the firm are the logos 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 — a ten-minute tribute to the firm’s trademarks that introduced a new approach to showcasing the 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.
