This beautifully drawn sketch captures the essence of the period of design when a pencil and piece of paper were the design tools of choice.

Raymond Loewy (November 5, 1893 – July 14, 1986) was an 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. Born in France to a Jewish family, he spent most of his professional career in the United States.
