The show’s main logo is also a title card, which means it just says the name in a single line. The names of both main characters are written in big letters, while the ‘and’ in the middle is much smaller. They don’t use a typical typeface, but instead have a fluid, rippling style for these letters. The coloring is usually turquoise with yellow rims.

The style is a reference to the portal fluid, used extensively in the show to transport between dimensions, realities and just space. Portals in the show have a similar appearance and are caused by shooting this liquid into the air.
