Fremantle approached us to create key art for the show which focused on the powerful cast and incredible New Zealand scenery. We also tried to inject some of the key themes from the storyline, such as the Gold Rush, Astronomy, and Fate.
The following shows the final key art, as well as some initial ideas from the process.
