The Design and the Designers
The first coin’s reverse design was a collaboration between Christian Davies and Matt Dent, partners at graphic design agency Bison Bison.
“As Bond fans ourselves, we’ve enjoyed re-watching some of our favourite films. The design series focuses on iconic imagery from the Bond films. Finding the balance between design detail and what can be accomplished in production was a challenge, nowhere more so than the intricate spokes of the DB5’s wheel.”
