Google Saul Bass Doodle

Today Google has a special interactive and pretty neat logo, aka Google Doodle, for Saul Bass.

Saul Bass was famous graphics designer best known for his graphic work in films produced in the 1940s and 1950s. Specifically, the Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese films. He was born in New York, The Bronx to be specific today on May 8, 1920. He died on April 25, 1996 in Los Angeles, California. He was married to Elaine Bass and had two children.

You can see his full biography at Wikipedia, it is pretty impressive.

Google tried to show honor to his contributions to this world by making a video Doodle. Here it is:

It is wonderful, don't you think?

WoW, was he mentioned by Kramer in Seinfeld : "Jerry are you blind? He's a writer, he said his name was Saul Bass. Bass, Jerry! Instead of salmon, he went with bass! He just substituted one fish for another!" Can't find precise evidence right now, but seems pretty possible. Interesting. Need to know more about him. Thanks for info )
