The Dancing C Design, Paul Rand
About

In 1962, Paul Rand, one of America’s most celebrated graphic artists, created the trademarked corporate logo and identity for Cummins Engine Company. Among his noteworthy designs are iconic logos for ABC, Westinghouse, IBM and UPS. He worked on many projects for Cummins from 1961-1996.

For the Columbus Area Visitors Center, he created the colorful “dancing Cs” (1974), letterhead, signs, visitors maps, architectural tour markers, and designed the first editions of the Look At Architecture book, including its covers. In 2006, the Columbus Brand Committee worked with North Star from Nashville to create a community brand, “unexpected. unforgettable,” which paid homage to Rand’s original design by retaining a skewed “C” based on Paul Rand’s original design and his modern typography. This logo has been incorporated for many purposes located throughout the city.

This sculpture is a kugel, the German word for “ball,” that combines water and stone. The three-foot-diameter, 2,300 pound ball is carved from South African New Belfast black granite, kept in motion by 12 pounds of water pressure. Each of the three books are made from a different type of granite from the Bavarian Forest in Germany.“Discovery” suggests undefined possibilities both internally through reading and reflection, and externally through the world around us. The kinetic nature of the piece itself is a reminder that the pursuit of discovery is never ending.

Made by Kusser Granitwerke – Germany
