RTE Graphic Design: The Psycho Economy

The team at RTE Graphic Design are playing their part to help us understand recent economic developments in Ireland. The animation below featured on Prime Time (an Irish current affairs program) and was inspired by Saul Bass. Bass was an American graphic designer and Academy Award-winning filmmaker who worked with Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese. Amongst his most famous title sequences are the animated paper cut-out of a heroin addict's arm for Preminger's The Man with the Golden Arm, and the disjointed text that raced together and was pulled apart for Psycho.

The animation can also be accessed by clicking on http://www.rte.ie/graphicdesign/, then selecting 'work', 'recent work' and 'Economy in Numbers', the title of the video.

Did you know that we've been supply driven since the "apple was shoved in our faces? " That's the passing paradim as we struggle to create a "rounder world".
