Brand Identity Examples: Paul Rand Sketches NeXT
He called the presentation “the musical accompaniment of design.”
In 2011, Steven Heller wrote about Rand’s working with Steven Jobs on the NeXT logo in his book Design Dialogues. What I appreciate most about Heller’s book is this brilliant exchange, “Actually, I assumed that Steve Jobs, the founder of NeXT and the man behind the Apple computer, liked cute things, like the Apple logo in rainbow colors with a bite taken out of it. I was told that the reason it was called Apple was that Jobs challenged his staff to come up with an idea — and nobody did — so he decided upon the apple, for no other reason than he liked them. This is a classic example of how arbitrary symbols and logos are — or should be.”
The collection includes narratives on brand identity examples and creative inspiration, pushing boundaries and sourcing material for all forms of design including logo, package, print, branding, web and more.
