New for Acme Graphics! We make graphic prop generic Passports with printed or gold leaf embossed detail on front covers. Acme now have a range of generic Passport designs for front & inside pages. This is ideal for action props as gaining clearance on real passports can be difficult for productions to obtain quickly. Acme passports look and feel authentic and are clearance friendly.
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.
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.
