M16 the home of James Bond
"He was first offered the job of designing a feature film title sequence
in 1958 by director Stanley Donen for his production of "Indiscreet".
Binder became a regular face on many of Donen's productions before being
picked up by the Bond family. It was his work on "The Grass Is Greener"
(1960) that caught Bond producer, Cubby Broccoli's eye, and thus won
him the job on "Dr. No", just a year later.
"Dr. No" while simple in itself and expresses this
pop-art movement perfectly. The coloured spheres that flash brightly,
blended with the movement of silhouetted dancing girls - who become a
regular fixture in Binder titles and indeed icons of the James Bond
more on Maurice Binder here.
this is a really good site for title design and title designers.
