Spark: twelve

A series about people that have influenced my creative path

One of my favorite films is North by Northwest with, in my mind, the perfect combination of Alfred Hitchcock and Cary Grant. Even before I knew what graphic design was, I was in awe of the revolutionary title sequence, which was made in a time before computer aided design. I discovered more about its creator, Saul Bass (1920-1996) when I was at art college, and became a lifelong admirer of his work.
