Designed to tie in with the programme’s historical leanings, the titles are carved from wood then cast out of aluminium to produce varied weights and uneven surfaces. ‘We filmed the metal casting process and this formation of the type mark represents the birth of the city,’ says Wordsalad founder Nick Robertson.
