Fresh off the heals of the Oscars, it’s only right to reflect on one of the best – Saul Bass. His creative direction for film titles and posters furthered many hollywood stories with memorable imaging. His work is currently on display at London’s Kemistry Gallery. As they describe, “Born in New York in 1920, Saul Bass moved to Los Angeles where he set up his design studio in the 1950s. From this time until his death in 1996, Bass continued to work with Hollywood’s leading directors, including Preminger, Hitchcock and Scorsese. In 1968 Bass received an Oscar for his own film How Man Creates, which he regarded as his seminal work.” We have a few images from the exhibit posted below. If you find yourself in London be sure to visit. It’s on display until March 17, 2011.
