Saul Bass

was one of my great influences.
He was an american graphic designer and Academy Award winning filmaker, but he was best known for his design on animated motion picture title sequences, which is thought of as the best such work ever seen.

If the name does not ring a bell, his work will.
He is the author of titles such as Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, Vertigo and North By Northwest, Otto Premminger's Anatomy Of a Murder, John Fankenheimer's Grand Prix, Kubrick's Spartacus, Scorsese's Casino. 
The list is long.

His work is what turned graphic design into an art form.
He was an avant gardiste, a visionary and forever a great source of inspiration.
