First Paul Rand Virtual Documentary Video Festival


It ain’t Cannes or Sundance, but welcome to PRINT’s first annual (or maybe bi- or tri-annual) Paul Rand Virtual Documentary Video Festival, an aggregation of various videos about Rand by pros, amateurs, and acolytes. (Please note, we don’t vouch for quality, only quantity).

From the vaults of Connecticut designer Miggs Burroughs, here’s a 1991 cable TV show:

Part 2
Part 3

Here’s Preston McLanahan’s “Conversations with Paul Rand.”

Some tribute films here, here, and here.

From the Minneapolis studio Larsen Design, here is Paul Rand being interviewed by a nervous bearded gent at the Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul.
Part 2
Part 3

And now from ABC News
