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.
