Saul BassBy Laurena Etwi

Who is he? • May 8, 1920 – April 25, 1996 • American graphic designer and Academy award winning film maker • Greatest work- motion picture title sequences design, corporate logos and film posters

His posters • Saul Bass’ used simple shapes and images on his posters and titles to help capture the mood of a film • This differs from the usual photo of celebrities on posters • Highly inspired and influenced by Bauhaus & Russian constructivism who created work that encouraged the viewer to be active

His movie title sequences Click on link

How did he influence others • His work inspired many to see Movie Title sequences and posters rather as a form of art Mainly due to his known movie title sequences such as: • “It’s a mad mad mad mad world” • “The man with the golden arm” And also posters for movies such as: • “Precious” • “The shining”

Did it influence me? I decided to look at Saul Bass’ work as I found that he broke conventions of known and existing film sequences and movie title sequences. This is something I would like to try and further develop, however this is just an idea and I am not certain that this will suit my own work.
