We got our craft skills out for the task of making some Christmas school notice boards. We channelled our inner primary school student to re-create a class of art projects on 3 boards for various age groups. The commission was fun but took a while to get the glitter out the studio afterwards. We have created a range of school classroom wall dressing boards – these had the most pompoms and glitter on them.
Acme Graphics have started a range of blackboards or chalkboards that Acme create to look like aged blackboards for restaurant, bar and cafe sets. The blackboards are aged in the design stage and printed on vinyl + mounted on black foamex. The chalkboards look like well used blackboards and can have any text in any font without any of the chalk or mess and hassle of chalk pens!
The latest music video for The Horrors, “Something to remember me by” included some explicit graphic prop package design. Showcasing our various prop making techniques from perspex cutting to package design of products like sex toys, soap and lipsticks.
Acme now have a cutting plotter which not only cuts vinyl but will cut card to any design to create bespoke designed nets for props like cigarette packets, food packaging, stickers, food and drink labels.
Motion graphics can be created and loaded onto portable devices on Film Sets to assist the actor and scroll though pages as an animated sequence of graphics in action. Any device, Apple or Analogue, ipad, laptop, phone, hospital equipment, digital screens of any kind.
Pop Up signs printed at Acme – all artwork with clearable library stock images. Good for corporate set dressing like conferences, hospitals, offices, entrance halls and award ceremonies.
Earlier this year we were commissioned to design and print a wide range of props, signs and graphics for the O2 be More Dog commercial.
