Saul Bass 1920 – 1996
The first image I saw of Saul Bass’s was a Logo for Kleenex. As well as being a graphic Designer, I found out Bass had become an Academy Winning Film maker. I realised that along side logo designs, Bass also had produced a number of Title Sequences for Films such as “The man with the Golden Arm” and “Anatomy of Murder”. Through this is what he had become known best for. I quite like Bass’s Style, it’s kind of edgey and rough, it looks as though he uses shapes and fits them together to make an object or image. For example, in the clip which is the opening sequence to Anatomy of Murder, it looks as though hes just cut bits of paper out and has kind of merged them together to make a man, it doesn’t look smooth – But thats what I like about it.
