Entry #9

10. Paul Rand, Elliot Noyes, and Charles Eames shaped the public perception of IBM through design by modernizing and really cleaning it up. Making it uniform, but also really creative and suggestive or interpretive almost was one of the most effective aspects. They were all problem solvers, Charles Eames says, “Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose”, so they were not only designers, but they were also researchers and teachers.
