D e s i g n

The creation of a "plan or "convention for the construction of an object, system or measurable human interaction (as in "architectural blueprints, "engineering drawings, "business processes, "circuit diagrams and "sewing patterns). Design has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases the direct construction of an object (as in "pottery, "engineering, "management, "coding and "graphic design) is also considered to be design.

Designing often necessitates considering the "aesthetic, "functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process. It may involve considerable "research, "thought, "modeling, interactive "adjustment, and re-design. Meanwhile, diverse kinds of objects may be designed, including "clothing, "graphical user interfaces, "skyscrapers, "corporate identities, "business processes and even methods of designing.

Thus "design" may be a substantive referring to a categorical abstraction of a created thing or things (the design of something), or a verb for the process of creation, as is made clear by grammatical context. "(full article...)

Raymond Loewy (pronounced "/ˈl/ "LOH-ee, November 5, 1893 – July 14, 1986) was a French-born American "industrial designer who achieved fame for the magnitude of his design efforts across a variety of industries. He was recognized for this by "Time magazine and featured on its cover on October 31, 1949.

He spent most of his professional career in the United States, becoming a naturalized citizen in 1938. Among his designs were the "Shell, "Exxon, "TWA and the former "BP logos, the "Greyhound "Scenicruiser bus, "Coca-Cola "vending machines, the "Lucky Strike package, "Coldspot refrigerators, the "Studebaker Avanti and "Champion, and the "Air Force One livery. He was involved with numerous railroad designs, including the "Pennsylvania Railroad "GG1 and "S-1 locomotives, the color scheme and Eagle motif for the first streamliners of the "Missouri Pacific Railroad and a number of lesser known color scheme and car interior designs for other railroads. His career spanned seven decades.

The press referred to Raymond Loewy as The Man Who Shaped America, The Father of Streamlining and The Father of Industrial Design.
