Timewasters are back for a second season, this time around the South London jazz band have time-traveled back to the 1950s. Acme was tasked with creating two hero props, the first showcased in Episode 4. This episode centers around Horace’s private diary that is found and published. We designed the book cover that is heavily featured throughout the episode.
This book cover was inspired by sci-fi book covers of the time. Every aspect of the prop was considered including colour, composition and typography. The colours scheme is in keeping with the vibrant classic sci-fi covers of the 1950s, keeping in mind the presence of the atomic age, atoms feature in the background of our design.
