Saul Bass new release…ish

January 24, 2011

It may be an obvious or cliche choice for favorite designer…but I really do love Saul Bass. He is best known for his poster design as well as his creative approach to opening titles in film. For those of you not into old movies and poster art, you’ll know his logo for United Airlines.

I was excited to find today that his film,”Why Man Creates”, created in 1968 was for the first time uploaded to youtube in it’s entirety. The film explores and discusses the nature of creativity as it is broken down into 8 stages.

It aired for the first time, as a shortened version,  on the first broadcast of “60 Minutes” in 1968, and also won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short.

Feast your eyes on the genius of Saul Bass!

Phone Service (or lack there of)

This is entirely non-craft related but I just had to share. I’ve had a LOT of frustrating phone calls lately, including poor customer service, morons, long waits on hold, and absolutely terrible automated service.

I feel for this guy.

At the moment I feel like a bit of a tool as I am blogging from a café. But there are things to be done!

Above is a beautiful video from New Zealand to promote books. I am a collector of pop-up books and while this might not be a traditional pop-up book…it is pages coming to life!
