Never before have we seen Google put in so much effort to their home page logo design. We all know that they are tireless in working on new concepts and ideas, but today takes the cake.
Celebrating the career of the late American graphic designer and filmmaker Saul Bass, Google gives the artisan a worthy nod, coinciding with what would be 93rd birthday. The 1:20 animated video in the signature style of Bass runs effortlessly across the banner of the search engine giant.
Bass was best known for his cinema title sequences and movie posters, working with such directors as Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese. The video showcases some of his best work from a prolific Hollywood career which spanned five decades. Bass designed the title sequences for Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958), North by Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960), and his work also included Spartacus (1960), West Side Story (1961), The Shining (1980), Goodfellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991) and Casino (1995).
