Acme created artwork for the new series of League of Gentlemen. Familiar characters like Tubbs from the shop hold up digital and printed graphics for the new series set in 2017 rather than 1990s when mobile phones and laptops did not play such a big part in action props.
League of Gentlemen returned to BBC after a 19 year break. Critics have praised the return of the same characters from the original, set in the same town of Royston Vasey. The Actors look older but the sets had to dressed in the same way, while keeping up to date with the story line of the town being at risk from development. Acme Graphics were really pleased to help design some of the graphics for the three specials, aired at Christmas 2017.
Acme Graphics were very proud to be part of the new series of League of Gentlemen. The series included characters from the original series from 15 years ago. The sets had to be re-built to match the original series. We were asked to recreate the wallpaper design for The Dentons character’s set – working from stills from the 1990s original.
Acme have designed the artwork for Van and car vinyls and this car wrap. Printed vinyl can be attached to all vehicles. Cut vinyl is also an option but if colours are unusual, printed vinyl can be the best option.
We are often asked to print prop money. There are rules you have to stick to when reproducing printed money. Here is a stack of money we made into a 3D prop make. The bank notes need to be altered – these rules can be found on Bank of england guidelines
You may not realise that Acme Graphics make 3D prop making packaging too. Here are a few examples of the 3D graphic props that we have made over the years. We have an extensive library of package design or we can make anything bespoke. We recently made Tesco’s Christmas Bags for the Christmas advert.
Acme Graphics create 3D graphic props for action props or set dressing. Package design of food & drinks, cigarettes, condom packets, toy boxes, toiletries to dog food. We have a library of packaging that can be used with name clearance and we can print and make it! Cigarettes have changed – we we have to keep up with the changes.
