Saul Bass

These images are taken from the title sequences of the film 'Bunny Lake is Missing'. The concept is very simple but extremely effective. The hand tearing away the black to reveal the titles underneath is almost teasing, showing just a glimpse at first, before revealing the whole thing. The torn out shape of a little girl is brilliant, leaving an empty space, highlighting that she is missing. Our attention is also drawn to the word 'missing' as the black gradually turns to grey, giving the impression of fading away.
