Paul Rand, who is probably my most favorite modern designer (well, apart from the Eames), left a legacy of work, theory, and methology that matches no other. He gracefully and bravely changed the way we think about idenity and design, advertising and convention. Basically, he’s the boss. He’s the Charles in Charge. (what?!)
Paul-Rand.com is a new and excellent site dedicated to the work and philosophy of Rand, with a huge gallery of work, biographies, lots of quotes, and links to stores across these old intenets where you can find first edition children’s book and old IBM packaging. It has everything. Everything Rand. Check it out!

PS: You also should watch this amazing short video created by Imaginary Forces as a tribute of his illustrations. It’s great.
