Saul Bass Google Doodle

Almost every day, Google changes their homepage in celebration of some occasion taking place on that day. The Google Doodles celebrate events such as holidays, anniversaries, and famous birthdays. The one for today, Wednesday May 8, is possibly the best ever.

May 8, 2013 would have been the 93rd birthday of Saul Bass, one of the most influential graphic designers in history. An Oscar-winning filmmaker in his own right, Bass is best known for designing iconic movie posters for the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and John Struges as well as the credits sequences for films as varied as Psycho, West Side Story, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and Goodfellas.

Below, check out the Google Doodle tribute to Bass and read about another Bass tribute happening today. Read More »

Threadless Tees has released a line of t-shirts based on Marvel’s Spider-Man. The company challenged artists to design “a t-shirt inspired by the battle between Spider-Man and his archenemies.” And by archenemies, Threadless kept this limited to: Dr. Octopus, Electro, Sandman, Venom, Lizard, Kraven, Green Goblin, Vulture, Rhino, and Shocker. I found some of the contest entry rules funny, for instance — “The characters cannot be represented as children or animals” or “may not use actor likenesses or any logos in your design” and the expected no “blood and guts”, “political or adult content (sex, smoking, drinking, etc.)” Check out the winners after the jump, and buy them now on Threadless.

Check them out right now after the jump.
