Saul Bass

Like many others, I have always been impressed and inspired by the visual style of the talented graphic designer Saul Bass (1920-1996.)

His obituary in the New York times celebrated him as “the minimalist auteur who put a jagged arm in motion in 1955 and created an entire film genre…and elevated it into an art.”

Find your talent. Be creative. Try something new. Keep it simple. Give it context. And put your own stamp on it.

Thank you, Saul Bass.
