Saul Bass: Even his name sounds cool.

While searching for material to use in the PPP (primer, project, practice) blog project, I came across this interesting project where designer Saul Bass collaborated with Stanley Kuberick to create advertisements for his movie ‘The Shining’ (starring Jack Nicholson). The link details Bass’s process throughout his design journey to the final product from start to finish. Included are Kuberick’s responses to Bass’s designs, which I feel is a great way to show how designers collaborate with clients in so many different ways and include feedback into the revisions and finalization of projects.

(P.S. – I really love S.B.’s name – it flows so nicely!)
