Saul Bass: 1920 - 1996

More in the spirit of film than just in the Oscars, let's hear it for one of the great graphic designers, ever: Saul Bass. If you've seen a bunch of movies, you've likely see his work in many a great movie title sequence. I give credit to today's post by Steven Hart to bringing me to this wonderful tribute site for the artist. And if that's not enough, check out this other video salute:


  1. If Bass had never done the graphic design for any film but 'North By Northwest,' he'd still be immortal. I didn't know he also did 'The Cardinal.' I haven't seen that film in many years but I still remember the imposing red and black design he created.

  2. It surprised me, too. That, and Casino.
