YGO sighting!

While reading a newspaper at my grandparents' house two days ago, I came across the name "Karim Rashid". I was slightly amused (OLIVESHIPPING IS REAL!), and, having nothing better to do, I did an AltaVista search on the name.

Sayeth his Wikipedia article:
Karim Rashid (born 1960 in Cairo) is an industrial designer. He received a Bachelor of Industrial Design degree from Carleton University in 1982 and completed his postgraduate studies in Italy. Rashid has created over 2000 designs to his name, including projects ranging from interiors, fashion, furniture, lighting, art and music to installations. He designs for mass-production as well as privately. In 1993, he opened his own studio in New York City. He is married to digital painter Megan Lang.

His products actually look quite nifty. It seems that no matter what time period the characters were from, they all profited from his design prowess. XD
