1. Saul Bass

Date: May 8, 2013

Graphic design master Saul Bass designed film credits and movie posters for the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and Martin Scorsese. His posters look like Kandinsky's woodcut prints for Der Blaue Reiter or Banksy's stencil graffiti. For Bass's 93rd birthday in May, Google's doodle mimicked the designer's signature style, with an animation that looked like one of Bass's opening credits.
