Born in Newark, New Jersey to British parents. Best known for his motion picture sequences, as well as blending 60’s pop culture with formal Graphic Design. Worked in both New York then later London. Started working with print initially then transitioned into sequences for movies when he moved to London. From adcglobal.org,

As ringleader of Brownjohn Chermayeff & Geismar, he always insisted on new ideas, fresh imagery, and the best conceptual solution to the problem at hand. His goal was not to make things pretty but to arrive at a design that would solve a problem both conceptually and formally.”
