    The question I pose is so remarkably similar to the title of the thread that the
    question bears no difference from the title of the thread at all: Who is your Design Hero?

    When you were a good (or bad in the good way) little Student which famous Designer
    became your main inspiration?

    Mine was definitely Saul Bass (as a historical figure) and as a modern one I would
    have to say Jonathan Barnbrook.

    I would say Herb Lubalin would be my historical design hero and probably someone like Elliot Jay Stocks for a modern one.

    Lubalin had that rare ability to make something look so simple yet be so effective (e.g. his families and mother & child logos).
    Stocks is a very good web designer (IMO) as he has a great understanding for the user experience and he can code as well as design which I feel helps him have that understanding as he knows what the limitations of the code is when he is creating web visuals.

    I have to say Saul Bass. As a student I based an entire years work around his work with Hitchcock. A modern day agency I admire massively is Johnson Banks. lets hope that one day I get to work with them.

    Yeah he's not bad. But I still think Alan Fletcher was in a different league. He had wit and ideas as well as just style.
