Vertigo (series)

Vertigo is a series of generative compositions inspired on the works of Saul Bass, in particular the movie covers of Vertigo (1958), directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Saul was the master of movie titles, and the father of "kinetic typography", the technique mixing text and animation to express an idea. The elegance and simplicity of Saul's design is still of great influence to movie titles, graphic designs and typography.
