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 a stock of Generic magazines for action props or dressing sets. Interior Design, Architecture, Mens Magazines, Womens Fashion, teenage and gossip magazines. This is the latest one for ‘Murder in Successville’ made into an action prop. Generic design with library stock images and clearable name of Production’s choice.
3D effect wall panels designed to create a virtual set of wood panelling, fireplace, flock wallpaper surface. Designed by Grant Bailey, created in virtual reality by Acme Graphics and printed and mounted for a Nike Exhibition space, to experience a virtual set.
We added some small graphic details to the sets in this Wes Anderson directed Christmas Short film for H&M. Adrian Brody stars in the unmistakeable style from Wes Anderson films like The Grand Budapest Hotel and Fantastic Mr. Fox.
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.
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.
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.
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!
