Vertigo (1958) is a psychological thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and starring James Stewart, Kim Novak, and Barbara Bel Geddes. The film tells the story of a retired policeman who falls in love with a mysterious woman he has been hired to follow. Although it received mixed reviews on its first release, it has since gained in esteem and is frequently listed among the greatest films ever made. The graphic designer was Saul Bass. Saul Bass is probably the most famous name in the graphic arts industry. He worked on some sixty movie titles and posters as well as many instantly-recognizable corporate logos. Saul Bass liked to use stark designs, spirals and favored black, white and red. The poster for Vertigo is a typical example of his movie poster work. Alfred Hitchcock employed him for posters promoting Vertigo, North by Northwest and Psycho. The film Vertigo was about two people behaving in two different ways in the two halves of the movie. This duality gave Saul Bass the context. He was asked to design a poster to entice an audience. Red is the color of blood. It has a provocative effect across cultures. Even bulls would be angered by red if they could see it. Black and white are stark opposites. Used together with the image of a man above a woman, the colors intensify the danger. Whether he is helping or harming her, there is danger. The two figures are viewed from an oblique perspective. The viewer is not on the same plane as the two figures 20 meters away. We see people entering a vortex and there can only be one terrible result. The audience cares because it is involved. We are witnesses. The actions of the figures and the swirling spiral express movement. This movement may draw us in as we fall headlong into the events we see. The composition works very well. Saul Bass made decisions based on the likely reactions of people. The poster communicates information about the film and engages an audience. ***This is NOT COPY!!!.....Or Reproduction of any Kind.
