Saul Bass would have been 93 today, and to commemorate the late Hollywood artist's birthday, Google pays homage with a clever Doodle tribute.

Vertigo poster

He's the guy who designed all those ingenious posters and jazzy, geometric title sequences for Alfred Hitchock (his poster for "Vertigo" is a permanent fixture on my wall) and throughout his 40-year career, Bass worked with such directors as Preminger, Scorsese, Kubrick and Wilder.

At LACMA, you can see some of amusing handwritten exchanges with Kubrick about the original poster Bass designed for "The Shining." Bass went on to create the iconic corporate logos of AT&T and the original insignia for United Airlines and Continental.

Check out an archive of some of Bass' best work here, and watch the Google tribute below.
