I find totally great when Google pays homage to people in various fields. Today, Google is celebrating the birth of Saul Bass, one of the most famous graphic designers in the film industry, born in May 8th, 1920.

Being a graphic designer and a filmmaker granted Saul to do some astonishing title sequences for its time. Full of style and sense of aesthetics, these sequences are state-of-the-art pieces until this day. If you're checking this post in the day it's been published (5/8/13), you may visit Google.com to check Saul Bass' doodle. For those checking in any other date, go to Google Doodles to check it. The title sequence videos below can be seen at Art of the Title, simply by clicking each image. I hope you enjoy these, and don't forget to comment which is your favorite. Also, recommend your favorite title sequence artists. Cheers! ;)
