Mid-Century Modern Movie Titles

Much like the mid-century X-Men movie title sequence, I'm in love with this mid-century modern Dexter title sequence.

The first time I watched it, I thought, "This reminds me a lot of Hitchcock posters," and the YouTube descriptions let me know why:
The [work] I created for Dexter was inspired by mid-century modern design and particularly the work of Saul Bass - who developed both static graphics as well as animated title sequences. This is what I imagine the Dexter title sequence might look like if the show had aired in the 60s.
For those of you who aren't graphic design nerds, Saul Bass was the designer behind some of the most iconic movie posters and title sequences, including the poster for Hitchcock's Vertigo and the title sequence for Psycho.
