The Clients They Have Designed For…

Henry Steiner -  He has created designs for some of the most identifiable brands, such as IBM, Hyatt Regency, Hilton Hotels, Dow Jones, HSBC, Standard Chartered, Unilever, and was given the honor of designing the citys’ bank notes by the Hong Kong government.

Brian Tattersfield - Their first high-profile project was to create Harrods’ visual identity and other major projects were soon to follow. Their client list grew to include the FA Premier League (1992) and the Sydney Olympic Games (1993). By the time Brian retired, the company had become a major international agency.

Massimo Vignelli - He has produced some good logo designs for important companies just like American Airlines, National Parks Service, Ducati Motor, Great NorthEastern Railway, Cosmit, Kroin, and many, many more different clients.

Lance Wyman - Wyman, who has been described as a “rock star” of graphic arts, made his reputation when he designed the logo for the 1968 Summer Olympic Games. He has also designed icons for museums and many other institutions, individualized signs for buildings at the U.S. National Zoo, and many other symbols. Stepping outside his usual genre, he designed a poster for the 2008 Barack Obama presidential campaign. Perhaps his most enduring design is the stylized route map he devised for the Washington Metro in the mid-1970s, showing routes, stations, transfer points, and certain landmarks in a clear fashion, although distances are not to scale. In 2011, Wyman was called on to design a new Metro map, able to depict planned new lines and route orientations, as well as some station names that have been expanded to the point of being cumbersome.

saul bass companies

An ode to graphic designer and filmmaker, Saul Bass.

Saul Bass (May 8, 1920 – April 25, 1996) was a graphic designer and Academy Award-winning filmmaker. Although an excellent logo designer, he is best known for his design on animated motion picture title sequences, which is thought of as the best such work ever seen.

During his 40-year career he worked for some of Hollywood’s greatest filmmakers, including most notably Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese. Amongst his most famous title sequences are the animated paper cut-out of a heroin addict’s arm for Preminger’s The Man with the Golden Arm, and the text racing up and down what eventually becomes a high-angle shot of the United Nations building in Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest.

he was also resposible for creating the kleenex logo http://www.logodesignlove.com/all-about-saul-bass
