If you love witnessing the creative process, don’t miss this classic post about Saul Bass’ design of the poster for Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining”. A letter from Bass to Kubrick, in part, reads:
Dear Stanley: Here are the five designs which surfaced out of the work done since I returned. I am excited about all of them, and I could give you many reasons why I think they would be strong and effective identifiers for the film. But the one I think is strongest is No. 1. It’s provocative, scary and emotional. It has size, and promises a picture I haven’t seen before.SAUL BASS
Thanks to Bob Staake for pointing us to it.
