Today is the 120th anniversary of the birth of the noted industrial designer Raymond Loewy (November 5, 1893 – July 14, 1986). Born in France to a Jewish family, he spent most of his professional career in the United States where he chieved fame for the magnitude of his design efforts across a variety of industries.

 

Among Loewy's most iconic designs were the logos of Shell, Exxon, TWA and BP. He was also responsible for the Greyhound Scenicruiser bus, Coca-Cola vending machines, the Lucky Strike cigarette package, Coldspot refrigerators, the Studebaker Avanti and Champion, and the Air Force One livery.

 

In the railway field he designed the GG1 (http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=452363&nseq=5) and S-1 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PRR_S1.jpg) locomotives for the Pennsylvania Railroad.
