A life in film and design

November 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

In just a title, you have to capture the essence and give identity to a brand, a cover, a film. That’s why we can comprehend some of designers’ ‘peculiarities’ and that is the reason we love Saul Bass and his work: he managed to convey through graphic design the atmosphere of some of the greatest films of Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese.

His work is put together in a book, entitled Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design, designed by his daughter Jennifer Bass and written by distinguished design historian Pat Kirkham. The large tome covers more than 1,400 illustrations, covering classic films such as Anatomy of a Murder and Vertigo and many others never published before. To celebrate the release of the book, Ian Albinson created the following video, which highlights some of Bass’ most celebrated films.
