Saul Bass

Saul Bass was a Jewish-American graphic designer and filmmaker but he is best known for his design on animated motion picture title sequences.

He was born in New York City, and studied at the Art Students League until later attending classes at Brooklyn College. He started out doing print work for film ads and then became widely famous after creating the title sequence for The Man With The Golden Arm. He is very well known for the logos that he created, such as the Continental Airlines and Kleenex logo. He also designed many movie posters, including West Side Story, and Psycho.

His work can be found all around us, and some of his logos are still being used today. Personally, I think his work is really cool. I am particularly fond of his movie posters, just because that is one of the areas that I want to explore after I graduate from college. His designs have a retro look to them, and are simplified with geometric elements.
