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.
