masters of design

Raymond Loewy, considered by many to be the father of industrial design, is being celebrated today by a Google Doodle on the search engine’s homepage (doodle shows a locomotive bearing a resemblance to the K4s Pacific #3768 shroud design).

Loewy was born in Paris on November 5, 1893, so today marks his 120th birthday anniversary.

He is widely considered to have revolutionized the industry creating product designs for everything from refrigerators to cars, cigarette packets and spacecraft. He also designed logos for Exxon and Shell as well as the former BP logos. He was also responsible for the design of the Coca-Cola vending machines and the iconic Greyhound Scenicruiser bus.”
