Hitchcock #Poster Series / designer Saul Bass / New Psycho prequil / Hitchcock exhibits

Design Work Life » Daniel Zender: Hitchcock Poster Series:
Does the name need to change from Psycho to the Birds?
It's cool to see all the new ideas for book jackets and movie posters. Doing projects like this is a great way to create a portfolio. And the work of Hitchcock is ideal because the master knows how to tie all the small details together to make something much greater than the sum of it's parts. For instance, Most Hitchcock movies have only a few words in the title. That's marketing genius. We will forever think of Hitchcock when we hear the word Psycho or Vertigo, Suspicion or Saboteur.

Graphic designer Saul Bass created most of the movie posters for Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese, a well as dozens of logos for major corporations that are recognized internationally.  He also directed his own sci-fi feature film called "Phase IV" using macro photography to reveal the life of ants on the offensive against humans. The movie was screened recently with the Long-Lost Original Ending (slashfilm.com). See this in-depth article about Saul Bass: The Evolution of an Artist (noupe.com)
