Raymond Loewy

Google marks the 120th birthday of Raymond Loewy, called “the father of industrial design” after designing everything from trains to the Greyhound bus to the logos of several competing petrol companies, refrigerators to the Coke vending machine to the livery for Air Force One.

He made his name in the USA after being injured fighting for his native France in the First World War, claiming he arrived with nothing but his uniform and fifty dollars in his pocket. This would be the perfect point to feature him in a Celebrity Historical showing how different the world would be without him... perhaps borrowing from the Tenth Doctor comic series The Futurists as aliens tap into his imagination to change the whole world in his image, Dark City style.
