Its Christmas! Time for christmas commercials

Over the year we have been commissioned to do various  Christmas Commercial graphics. Bespoke package design for a Mcdonalds Commercial, set in a toy shop based on a love story between an animated doll and a spaceman toy.

We created the Doll box which featured in the shop window and the bespoke vintage feel calendar with tear off pages of nostalgic snowy christmas scenes.

Graphic Design turned into inflatable Prop “Blownup”

We were commissioned to design a character that was transformed into an inflatable 3D character called a “Blownup” for a Ford Commercial earlier this year. The illustration was turned into an inflatable “Grown-up’,  that would encourage safe driving as statistically there are less accidents in cars when there are older adults present.

Race to the finish line

Over the last year we have been commissioned to create graphic artwork and print for many commercials. This one is a Virgin Train Commercial shoot at Olympic Park and Finsbury Park in April 2016, featuring our design on quite a large scale.
Here are some stills from the production and a few graphic design details and photos from the shoot.

Graphic design for 100 metres of barrier signage

Our client was the production designer Nick Foley-Oates, who initiated the layouts, which we took over and turned into the finished designs for the Start and Finish Stanchion Banners, Banners Flags and hundreds of metres of Barrier Banners.

As ever the time available for printing and finishing was compressed into a couple of days, so it really was a race against time to get them to the location for the shoot!
