Re-tracing the night before in Benidorm

We were asked to create a wall of information as the character, Pauline in Benidorm tries to trace steps to help trigger a memory of who she had spent the night with. The wall follows her journey using graphic mockups of fictional on-line Facebook profiles, emails, bank accounts and general lifestyle paperwork and photos, as she re- traces her steps across a notice board.

Antony Cartlidge is the designer of Benidorm Series 6, who asked us to create varied graphics in addition to this notice board  and take it to Spain for the shoot.

General every day paper work can be created to dress various domestic settings. Domestic utility bills, bank statements, Takeaway menus, Workout timetables, football training schedules, school certificates, recycling bins notices, newspaper clippings, tickets and business cards can fill a background to create authenticity of a domestic setting creating more authentic set dressing.

New KFC commercial ‘wedding’ featuring our period book cover

Nick Foley-Oates  asked us to create a period Sci-Fi novel cover for the new KFC commercial. We had to illustrate the cover in a convincing 1950 style, to look convincingly old and worn in close up.

The agency were very specific about the look of the book cover, and handily provided lots of reference material that helped nail the illustration style.

We have designed many prop book covers over the years, but not all of them were as much fun.
