Working with Director Angus Wall at Elastic, I designed and art directed the titles for season two of HBO's The Leftovers. HBO asked us to completely overhaul the main-title sequence from season one with a much more contemporary open. Snapshots of ordinary people doing everyday things things roll by, but with a twist: somebody’s missing from each picture - a fitting concept for a show about the rapture. The piece features my first custom font, which I'm calling Mara Sans.
