My take on the TryLateral - Raymond Loewy

1) Blue - The color of postboxes in the US - Raymond Loewy designed the old USPS logo.

2) Speedster - Studebaker Speedster - Loewy designed logos and automobiles for Studebaker.

3) JFK - John. F. Kennedy - Loewy designed the livery for JFK's Air Force One. He also designed the five cent JFK commemorative stamp.

OK, who else is ready to join TA (TryLateralholics Anonymous)? :) Yesterday, I've never even heard of this guy Loewy. Today I think I know enough to write his biography.
