Long-time friend Phil Gyfordgot himself profiled in the Guardian today, as “one of the few people in this industry who produces much more than he promises; the complete opposite of the loud new media bullshitter.” That is: he plans things and gets them done. (I should study him!) Anyway, he’s a standup chap and has always been a help to me when I’m stuck on coding my sites. Cheers!
Most film geeks know Saul Bass as the master of the opening credit sequence. “Vertigo” and the original “Ocean’s 11” both start off with famous Bass sequences. But what I wasn’t aware of was that Bass designed many famous corporate logos, most of which will be immediately recognizable (Exxon, Girl Scouts, United Airlines).
