Herb Lubalin

Herb Lubalin b.1918 -d.1981. If you haven’t bit his work, or butchered his typefaces, you’ve at least seen his iconic typographic logo for Avant Garde magazine. The logo spawned a type face of the same name in 1970 which was later condensed by Ed Benguiat. Many people are unfamiliar with his work beyond this typeface so, please take a moment to check him out. Thanks to Peter Gabor of the excellent Design & Typo site for providing the Herb Lubalin tribute gallery.

For those of you who can’t enough of Saul bass. The Excellent Saul Bass Tribute Site Saul Bass on the Web is back after a long Hiatus. Brendan Dawes who created the site does a great job of bringing Saul’s work back to life through flash animations very similar to his title sequences. The site includes a filmography, video of some of titlling works, biography, as well as a poster gallery filled with classic works ( The man with the Golden arm, Anatomy of a murder and Vertigo) by the master.

Also worth checking out is Notcoming.com’s Saul bass title gallery.
