Former Jetblue employee and free-spirit extraordinaire Steven Slater use to be my hero as of last Monday,  but now I have a new one. Considered as one of the most innovative and groundbreaking graphic designers of the 20th Century having worked with topnotch filmmakers like Hitchcock and Scorsese, the legendary Saul Bass has certainly made a mark in the design world with his pieces.  He's done some really wonderful work ranging from film posters, logos, and credit sequences--most of which has been recognizable over the years and still influences design today.

I've always secretly loved the logos for Bell, AT&T, and United Airlines--

Check out more of his his posters, logos, & opening credit sequences over at Wellmedicated and Signalnoise.
