Raymond Loewy Concept Sketches

I found these amazing concept design sketches by industrial designer Raymond Loewy. Mr Loewy is know for his iconic designs such as the Coca-Cola bottle, the GG1 Locomotive, the Studebaker Avanti, and the Lucky Stripe cigarette package (which hasn’t changed since 1942!) I love the loose hand and perspective of these beautiful sketches.

    The steam locomotive illustrated as “Loewy’s GG1” is misnamed; that locomotive is NOT a GG1 (which was an electric locomotive). The illustration shows a “T1” locomotive.
