Acme Graphics design Animations for Film and TV

Acme Graphics has been credited in the award winning film Northern Disco Lights for its animation throughout the film. The story of house music is told from the perspective of the DJ’s and Producers both from Norway and internationally acclaimed music professionals. The film is a selection of vintage clips and animations to illustrate the memories of the people involved in the music movement that is now internationally respected.


This video is compliments the narration by the DJ’s from Norway talking about when popular music came to Norway that had been up until that time about 25 years behind in music taste, with no radio stations or DJ Events. This animated sequence designed by Acme tells the story perfectly and gives the viewer a funny picture of the average life of a young Norwegian in the early 1990s.

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.

1950s style SCI-Fi book covers for KFC commercial

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.
