If you’ve ever seen a film by Alfred Hitchcock or Stanley Kubrick, then you’re probably familiar with the title sequence designs of Saul Bass.
Some of the title sequences he’s more notable openings include The Man with the Golden Arm (1955), The Seven Year Itch (1955), Around the World in Eighty Days (1956), Vertigo (1958), Anatomy of a Murder (1958), North by Northwest (1959), Psycho (1960), Spartacus (1960), Exodus (1960), Ocean’s Eleven (1960), West Side Story (1961), It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), Broadcast News (1987), Big (1988), Goodfellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991 )and Casino (1995). His minimalistic 1950′s/1960′s-style is very unique, and we often post movie posters imitating his style in our Cool Stuff columns.
But what is Saul Bass designed the opening title sequence for every movie and television show? What might they look like. Hexagonall decided to try to recreate the opening of Tron and the tv show Lost using Saul’s minimalistic style. Check out the result, which plays as both a homage and parody, after the jump.
