Directed by Sam Mendes
Main Title Design by Daniel Kleinman

Daniel Kleinman took over the main title design role with Pierce Brosnan’s first outing in Goldeneye in 1995, picking up the baton from legendary designers Maurice Binder and Robert Brownjohn, who set a high bar of high 007 style from the very beginning with Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice and continued through the 1980s. Skyfall marked Kleinman’s sixth outing as main title designer for the Bond franchise.

About This Series

Title design in film is an art form. When done well, beautifully designed opening titles introduce us to the experience, helping to set the tone and get us ready for the story that we’re about to see. They should neither overshadow the movie nor underwhelm. They should be a perfect tonal complement.

This is the first in a recurring series that celebrates brilliant work by brilliant title designers – something I’ve always appreciated and admired. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. A haunting theme with the recurring theme of graveyards, and sculls; the “memento mori” reminding us that all things end, and we all die. Skyfall. One of my favorite bond films.

  2. wonderful work. I love Daniel Craig as Bond, dark and vulnerable looks as good in a Tom Ford suit or jeans and a leather jacket, Skyfall is the best of the best
