13 Sep Little known interview with the famous Paul Rand
Posted at 03:46h in Design
A great little interview with the master:
Paul Rand. 1914-1996. This six-minute amateur video footage of Paul chatting with some design students offers an insight into the man I hadn’t seen. At the time of writing there are just 233 views on YouTube. A tiny amount considering his reputation in design circles.
Worth your time. The video corrects a mistake I made when attributing this quote to Rand:
“Don’t try to be original. Just try to be good.”
Rand was actually quoting the late architect, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. For a more indepth discussion, here’s an interview with Paul Rand. (via LogoLove)
