Google celebrating Graphic Design-YEEEAA!


(American graphic designer and filmmaker, Saul Bass, has been given a video
Google Doodle to mark what would have been his 93rd birthday.
Bass was best known for his cinema title sequences and movie posters,
working with such directors as Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and Martin
Scorsese. The video showcases some of his best work from a prolific
Hollywood career which spanned five decades. He designed the title sequences
for Hitchcock's Vertigo (1958), North by Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960),
and his work also included Spartacus (1960), West Side Story (1961), The
Shining (1980), Goodfellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991) and Casino (1995). He
died in Los Angeles in 1996 aged 75)


Also enjoyed student forum at Melbourne Museum for Top Designs yesterday.
Ex-VET IDM student and now full time Interactive Media Developer, Luke
Deylen took students thru a journey of his career since finishing year 12.
His messages were clear and not that different from what we tell our
students (but I'm sure they listen more when someone "real" tells them) -
importance of the design brief, understand your client and the target
audience, research, communicate and evaluate.(and travel as soon as you

It's well worth visiting Top Designs, if you haven't already done so - a
good excursion.
