An Interview with Ivan Cherminoff

An incredibly prolific graphic designer and collage enthusiast. It’s interesting to hear from him about the graphic design industry, it’s amazing how far it’s come and developed into a massive area of profession. The answer that interested me most from this interview was about his work habits. I like that he says he can recognize when something isn’t going to become something good and scrap it to start over.

I throw a tremendous amount away, and say okay, it’s just not going to work. I’ve gotten pretty good at rejecting my stuff when it doesn’t work. I throw things right into the garbage can, as opposed to juggling and finicking and doing those things that painters do. I have a small fear of drawing, and an even bigger fear of painting.
