Title designer Karin Fong: “The film’s director, Mark Steven Johnson, wanted an idea that highlighted what was unique about Daredevil - his blindness. So, in the beginning we brainstormed all the ways to convey this. The initial stages involved coming up with concepts and storyboard keyframes. Because Daredevil relies on his hearing so much, there were a couple ideas that involved sonar, and ways of having images revealed by soundwaves. One concept involved traveling through his ear. Another went in a totally different direction using his trademark weapon. But the idea of using Braille was always a favorite.”

“The twist was that they would become the city lights of Hell’s Kitchen, where the hero lives. When the team - Charles Khoury, Greg Reynard, and Brian Castleforte - went about animating it , we decided to make the Braille type emerge from the lit windows and the buildings vanish into the background for a more haunting effect."
