Google Doodle Pays Tribute to Industrial Designer Raymond Loewy



Coca-Cola bottle, Shell logo, Lucky Strike cigarette package and locomotives for the Pennsylvania Railroad — what do all these items have in common? They were all designed by the same man, Raymond Loewy, one of the most influential industrial designers in history
