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.
James Corden is well known as the face of Confused.com commercials in the classic Mercedes with the memorable Confusd Licence plates. Acme Graphics made these graphic prop licence plates. We used car filler on foamex, sanded and car sprayed the prop then added vinyl lettering to create a plate with profiled letters.
Acme Graphics have started a range of blackboard signs 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!
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.
