It looks like we will be seeing a lot of Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the 2018 FIFA World Cup approaches, not on the pitch but as the global face of Visa’s marketing campaign for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
This week we saw the first glimpse of Visa’s global advertising campaign with a cheeky ad starring the Swedish striker and featuring a logo crest designed by Acme Graphics. Playing on his world famous ego, Acme created Zlatan his very own ‘royal’ crest.
In the words of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s ‘Don’t worry world, the lion cannot miss the hunt’.
The ‘royal’ crest design was one of many items that Acme were asked to create for the production, including digital painting, illustration and graphics for vehicle wrapping.
Acme Graphics have been creating film and TV Animation for over 20 years. Our resident designer and animator: Nick Hellman, who founded Acme Graphics, created all the animations for the League of Gentlemen computer sequences. We can create all types of interactive graphics and animations for Computers, tablets and smart phones, static, interactive or fully animated.
The famous League of Gentlemen road signs that we all recognise from the original series broadcast in the 1990s, had to be redesigned for the 2017 special. Acme were asked to make sure they were as close to the original as possible.
Acme Graphics specialise in creating animations for use on prop laptops, desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones. We have created many variations as per scripts from art departments from TV & Film.
This clip shows Les Mcqueen, played by Mark Gatiss from the fictitious band Creme Brulee in League of Gentlemen. He was Googling himself and Acme Graphics created the whole sequence as an animation so that the Actor has both control over the movements or they can be programmed in taking the stress away from the actor and the prop man controls the action for the director off camera.
Acme Graphics can make a range of books covers contemporary or vintage looking. We can even gold foil emboss the covers in vintage or modern style. We have a library of prop bookcover designs that be printed as hardback or paperback covers.
Acme Graphics create artwork and printing of old and new Newspapers. We print full newspapers using our library stock pages as fillers or we can work with clients who get permission from real Newspaper companies to made authentic newspapers for TV & Film. Channel 4 drama used real newspapers that we printed on “Kiri” a drama with Sarah Lancashire about an abducted child. The headlines blame the Father and are seen featuring in the drama throughout as the drama unfolds.
The latest Mcdonald’s commercial celebrates the 50th Birthday of the Big Mac. We were asked to make some graphics to illustrate the shoot through the decades of 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. We made some carrier bags, van graphics, tax discs, and a backlit menu.
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.
