52 weeks of Inspired Design Decisions #38 — Saul Bass

Throughout 2020, I’ve committed to designing 52 designs for a series of Inspired Design Decisions. This is week 38 and my design this week was again inspired by Saul Bass.

In a career which spanned over 40 years, Saul Bass not only designed some of America’s most iconic logos, but also designed title sequences and film posters for some of Hollywood’s best filmmakers, including Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and Martin Scorsese. For Hitchcock, Bass created innovative title sequences for films including North by Northwest, Psycho, and Vertigo. The opening sequence of Mad Men—one of my favourite TV shows—pays homage to Bass who died in 1996 aged 75.

While articles about how to use CSS Grid and Flexbox are common, when and why to use them is hardly ever discussed. Very few people are taught design fundamentals or see inspiring examples to learn from. Through this unique “Inspired design decisions” magazine series, Andy Clarke is changing that. Each magazine includes a high quality PDF, plus examples of HTML/CSS code for you to learn from and use in your projects. Only £3.99 per issue. If you’re not 100% happy with any magazine, you get a full refund and can even keep the files.
