Tron Vs. Saul Bass
Tron vs. Saul Bass from Hexagonall on Vimeo.
Saul Bass seems to be making a very quiet comeback lately. While riffing on his style didn't do the latest Tom Cruise film much good (though the poster was pretty cool) I'm glad to see someone taking an interest in commercial art that is not only conceptual, but doesn't explicitly involve Photoshop.
Above is a new opening credits sequence for Tron inspired by Bass' style by graphic designer Hexagonall, who also knocked together a series of posters in the same spirit. You can buy prints of these posters (as well as many others) at Imagekind.
