♥ i want to make beautiful things. even if nobody cares.

last night i watched the facts of life (1960) on netflix,
and i could not help but notice the adorable movie title sequences that
played during the opening credits. a google search later brought up
the work of american graphic designer/ film maker, saul bass.

as you can tell from the images below, bass was a very prolific artist,
creating movie titles for some of the most well known films of our time.
(see more here.)

“I want everything we do – that I do personally, that our office does – to be beautiful. I don’t give a damn whether a client understands that that’s worth anything, or that a client thinks it’s worth anything, or whether it is worth anything. It’s worth it to me.  It’s the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things. 
Even if nobody cares.”
— SAUL BASS, Bass on Titles, 1977
