    Hi,
    I’m writing about the Saul Bass portrait you have on your site. The photo is copyrighted by photographer John G. Zimmerman. If the photo is to be used in this way, we ask that those who use it give proper credit to the photographer.

    I’ve included an example of a site, AIGA, that uses the same image online and attributes it correctly: http://chapters.aiga.org/content.cfm/medalist-saulbass.

    If you could please check out AIGA’s attribution of the photo and update your own to include the proper credit, we would greatly appreciate it.

    Many thanks,
    Linda Zimmerman
