"The script typeface there is called Mistral. It’s quite funny, because it’s derided by many design communities – it’s almost like putting Comic Sans on there. But it’s one of those things, because having already watched the film, with the titles set in that typeface as well, I always wanted to have at least something written in it."

"That street background is a generic background shot, something we have on our files. I was very influenced by this amazing Taxi Driver poster by a Belgian artist called Guy Peellaert, which is this incredible painting of De Niro in front of his taxi. The whole feel, the whole mood of that was what I was trying to achieve. It doesn’t scream New York, there’s not much in the background, just this slight seediness to it. We’ve got that poster up in our office, actually."
