“I am not a has-been. I am a will be.”
Betty Joan Perske (Lauren Bacall) – September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014
Saul Bass was an American graphic designer and Academy Award winning filmmaker, best known for his design of motion picture title sequences title and film posters.
His designs, particularly his early work in the 1950s and 1960s, revolutionized film posters, movie title sequences, and the way movies were marketed. His designs were iconic, clean, and simple. Bass used typography and concept to convey moods rather than the previously tried-and-true method of film stills and paintings of film stills. He brought minimalism to the movie-going masses.
If you’ve seen a film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger, Billy Wilder, or Stanley Kubrick, then you’re probably familiar with the work of Saul Bass. He even worked on a handful of Scorsese films, including Goodfellas (1990) and Cape Fear (1991).
