Art Paul, the designer of the iconic Playboy bunny logo, created a lasting impact in graphic art and design throughout the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. As the founding art director of Playboy magazine, he paved the way for one of the most significant cultural phenomena in America. His achievements and impact go far beyond the prime time of Playboy Magazine – he was a prolific artist, an inspiring mentor to many, a wordsmith and philosopher with whimsical humour. He continued to create art till his 90s, aging with grace and creativity.

Through interviews with Paul, former Playboy executives, art directors, artists, family members, as well as archival footage and imagery, this documentary highlights the life of a legendary art director, acclaimed artist and inspiring human being.
