Just easing into the week with a fun Flickr collection rolling through on slideshow. It has almost 150 screenshots from various films and tv shows over the years. Lots of fun fonts. My favorite turned out to be this classic by Saul Bass.
Designer Saul Bass was BIG a few decades ago (think Vertigo and the original AT&T logo) and his influence can still be found in book covers today. Here is a short video a design student worked up, imagining “what if Saul Bass had been tapped to do the now iconic Star Wars title sequence. I think the fonts and titles are spot on and “very Bass”. It’s all pretty cool (though I’m not sure about the music).
And I wish I could get it to embed, but we seem to be having problems, so you’ll have to click on through, if you want to watch. Sorry. Once there you’ll be able to see the other films Bass’s brush has been applied to.
