Maurice Binder

M16 the home of James Bond
 Maurice Binder
"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.
The first Bond title, "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 cinema experience."
