Esther Extraordinaire

Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan


Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan now in it’s second season airing on BBC America, BBC WorldWide and OLN is a travel show which features some of the worlds most dangerous insects and reptiles on the planet.

Working with Cream productions Kerosene designed and developed the intro title sequence treating footage and creating an end title reveal.

The design package included stylized in show map animations and multiple variations of bumpers for the show. As part of our approach we wanted to achieve a look that reflected the gritty and dangerous feel of the show with textures, hand drawn lettering and animated creature elements that surround the title.

“Too much is never too much” is the motto of extraordinary decorator Esther Tracy. Her over the top designs are not for the faint of heart and her flamboyant style pushes the boundaries of her clients comfort zone. Don’t mention the B word to Esther because what does the budget matter “if the look is right” – that’s David’s problem.

Working with Cream productions, Kerosene designed and developed the opening title sequence, bumpers and transitions for the show. Several design approaches were developed until creative consultant Richard Mortimer crafted his cheeky style for the series, which filtered into design; and that’s what makes this series extraordinary.
