SAUL BASS
May 8 1920 - April 25 1996

To commemorate the life and work of legendary designer Saul Bass, today’s Google Doodle video draws inspiration from the graphic artists’ work in film.

Bass designed posters and opening sequences for the Alfred Hitchcock classics Vertigo (1958), North by Northwest (1959)and Psycho (1960), as well as for films such as The Man with the Golden Arm (1955), The Shining (1980), Anatomy of Murder (1959) and Goodfellas (1990).

His iconic, eye-catching work still influences designers today (Hello! Mad Men opening titles!) and continues to captivate modern audiences experiencing his highly original work for the first time.
