Acme Graphics ‘Stackin’ Books’ for McDonalds

The Mcdonald’s ‘Great Tastes of America’ menu is back and with the arrival of a new menu comes a new advert. This quirky advert set in a library and naturally featuring a basketball player used Acme Graphics to recreate vintage books.

We came up with book covers that are aged at the artwork stage – these are printed and wrapped around existing books. It is a cheap way to cover a large area of book shelving for a tricky location shoot.

Acme Graphics can make a range of books covers contemporary or vintage looking.
Before the set came the studio. Acme Graphics create graphic props for a variety of book related requests.

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 Animation for League of Gentlemen

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.
