If you’re under 25, you’re probably saying, “Paul Who?”, and if your over 30 you’re probably saying “Paul, Mr. IBM, Rand”. Truth is, Paul Rand had a very successful graphic design career before the time of internet and mobile phones (fax machines and copy cameras?).
Well it seems the Paul has resurfaced, and is now designing great 140 character messages for the graphic designers of the 21st century. Now, in comes “The Angry Paul Rand”, and the greatest bit of graphic designer sarcasm since AnyoneCanSwiss (a small plug).
Example genius: “In my day I had a name for stupid clients who would not listen to my brilliant design advice. I called them “David Carson’s clients.” – The Angry Paul Rand.
We are designers here too. We were even trained in print design (like, on paper). While we recognize the work that Paul Rand did was indeed influential in his day, we also try not to harp on the past, and romanticize about “how design used to be”. @SwissMiss tweeted about him, and we also suggest that you go check him out. I hear he’s really old now, and please, don’t forget to laugh. @AngryPaulRandShare
