Saul Bass, (born May 8, 1920, New York, N.Y., U.S.—died April 25, 1996, Los Angeles, Calif.), American motion-picture designer-director, especially noted for imaginative, animated titles, prologues, and epilogues.

Bass studied at the Arts Students League in New York City, attended Brooklyn College, and worked as a freelance designer before moving to Los Angeles in 1946. Bass successfully directed and produced short animated films, television openings and commercials, live documentaries, and features.
