Design God

Ive been reading a book about Raymond Loewy. That guy was really ahead of his time. He got to design everything from logos, to entire trains right down to the food that was on the menu! A lot of his logos and designs are still in use today even though they were designed in the 1930's, like the Shell oil company. His train designs were really great because he took steam locomotives in the 1930's, which were essentially 19th century technology, and modernized them using the then new concept of streamlining and aerodynamics. I got inspired to do some train sketching of my own.
