Letter to Mr. Paul Rand
Greetings to not just a designer, but a true artist in any medium! Expressing my gratitude through this piece of paper for the learning got from you.
An identity for IBM has proven its timeless design even after 40+ years in the international market. Your articles and interviews always motivated me for experimentations- the quest for answers and this quest will go on forever.
Sir, your publications will remain a very good resource for the designers and artists across the globe. Your teachings for more than two decades at YALE has blessed many designers of that era. Indian Graphic Design had also the strong impact of your design philosophy at that times.
Your work irrespective of the media has taught me the use of form and content, light and shade and colour and space.
Learning to define the achievements through meaningful design, the design of quality and wit.
Sir, thanks for the Blessings!!
