While watching episodes of Luther, Zen or the premiere of the new Peter Moffat legal drama Silk you may have noticed that the title sequences of these three BBC One series share common esthetic qualities.

The reason is that these superb titles, which recall some title sequences of the golden age of ITC Entertainment, are from the creative talents of Momoco. Based in London and LA, the company was founded in 1999 by Nic Benns and Miki Kato. Film titles designed by Momoco include Love Actually (2002), Johnny English (2003), Alien Vs Predator (2004), Hard Candy (2005) or Bharat Nalluri's first feature film Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008).

For television they are behind the titles of dramas like Eleventh Hour (the original UK version), Murphy's Law and E4's hit Misfits (2009). Their work perfectly matches with Massive Attack's Paradise Circus in Luther (2010) or the beautiful theme composed by Adrian Johnston for Zen (2011). The titles of Zen are one of their many masterpieces, along with the clever title sequence of Episodes (2011).

Momoco also works on commercials, music videos and motion branding.
