Latest Vodafone Advert with Martin Freeman

The latest advert in the Vodafone campaign with Martin Freeman as a shopper approached by criminals in a basement car park. Acme Graphics designed the Exterior and Interior Car Park signage and all the food packaging that Martin Freeman complains about at the end of the advert. There was actually 30 pieces of package design created but cut in the edit. Luckily lots of Acme work did make the edit and featured heavily in the commercial.

Graphic Design turned into inflatable Prop “Blownup”

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.

Race to the finish line

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!
