1958 Design and Patriotism

“The hand of the stylist is ever designing changes to improve our life of the future. Thanks to the American stylist. Yes, Thanks to the men and women who design.”

— American Look, 26:20

Wandering the internet I found this video from 1958 called “American Look”. It is described as a documentary on design, though watching it you’ll see its very much more an incredibly long commercial for expensive things, Chevrolet, and America. Try to count how many time the narrator mentions America or freedom. I honestly lost track. But its a fun look at the past none-the-less. I always enjoy some retro design precedence.
