Hitchcock Musique
posted: February 14, 2013
My friends at Milan Music in Paris called the other day to see if I’d be interested in designing a CD cover for a collection of soundtrack music from Alfred Hitchcock films. Of course I would, and I sent them three options. My favorite was the caricature of Hitchcock, playing records in the Bates Motel, but I wasn’t sure if the tone was too light and I added a couple of more serious Saul Bass-y designs. They picked the caricature and it’s in French record stores now.

That first rejected cover references a favorite Saul Bass sleeve for "Frank Sinatra Conducts A Tone Poem of Color." I think you and they made the right choice for something eye catching in a cd bin. Frank Sinatra Conducts Tone Poems of Color Designed by Saul Bass 1956
