Though Saul Bass created some amazingly long-lasting logos, that is not really what he was known for. His real fame came from his revolution of the presentation of movie credits (yes, those short graphic sequences at the beginning of the movie…which perhaps you like to fast forward through…).
It was in this line of work that he met his wife, Elaine Makatura. They worked together on the title sequence of the film Spartacus in 1960. At this time in his life he worked on many films, both creating title sequences and designing the movie posters. Some of his most iconic movie posters were Vertigo, Anatomy of a Murder and The Man with the Golden Arm.
