Legacy of Saul Bass in title sequences

by Critical Commons Manager

The amazing thing is how broadly the 1960s animated title sequences by Saul Bass continue to resonate in contemporary motion graphics and title design. In his title sequences for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Rockn Rolla, designer Danny Yount continues this legacy, flattening live action figures into 2D spaces and minimizing the color palette to create striking visual effects.
