End titles designer on every James Bond film since THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS 1987

The first time I met the kind, friendly and open-hearted Pauline Hume was during Bond Girls Are Forever at Pinewood Studios on July 2, 2006.

Pauline is daughter of Bond cinematographer Alan Hume and Maurice Binder's assistant from the mid 1980's, assisting him in the design and editing of the opening titles to The Living Daylights (1987) and Licence to Kill (1989). She was also title designer for Goldeneye: The Secret Life Of Ian Fleming (1989); and end title designer on Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2002).

Pauline is the Bond Girl whose job it is to say "James Bond will return"!

Ms. Hume shared a lot of memories working for and with legendary Bond title designer, Maurice Binder, which was very interesting to hear about. Ms. Hume said she was about to do the end titles for Casino Royale (2006) and estimated it would take about a month to finish the work.

In 2008 and 2012, Pauline Hume coontinued her families legacy with James Bond when she created the end titles for Quantum of Solace and Skyfall (2012) respectively.

More about Pauline Hume:
After studying Fine Art and Graphics at Art School, Pauline joined the Film Industry and became specialised as a Designer of Main & End Titles, Film Graphics and Visual Effects.

She is employed as Art Director by various companies and achieved recognition through a long association with the legendary Title Designer, Maurice Binder.

Her work is mainly for screen but when asked to provide something for the walls at Pinewood Studios, she supplied a series of graphics, simplified images of film icons and in the process, reawakened an interest in Art for Art’s sake.
