Paul Rand at work

Paul Rand at work

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)
