What do Coke bottles, packs of Lucky Strikes, and the Shell logo have in common? They were all designed, or re-designed, by Raymond Loewy, an industrial design powerhouse who helped give the 20th century a sleeker look. Today marks the 120th anniversary of Loewy’s death and Google has honored him with a doodle picturing his concept design of a art deco train for the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
