Acme designed and printed many signs in the new David Mitchell & Robert Webb series, “Back” on Channel 4. Acme Graphics were commissioned to design exterior Pub and shop signs for the production. The pub signs were artworked to look like old wooden signs but they were printed on vinyl for Designer Rosie Thomas and Neil Barnes.
Acme Graphics have started a range of blackboard signs or chalkboards that Acme create to look like aged blackboards for restaurant, bar and cafe sets. The blackboards are aged in the design stage and printed on vinyl + mounted on black foamex. The chalkboards look like well used blackboards and can have any text in any font without any of the chalk or mess and hassle of chalk pens!
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.
Artwork for Location Exterior Restaurant added in Post Production for Benidorm . Interior Graphics designed and printed but exterior is “painted” digital visual.
We can now design Logos that can turn into Stencils for signage, decoration or branding.
Laser cut or engrave anything
You can laser cut and engrave anything using compressed air. Since the laser process is essentially a very controlled method of burning a material it’s possible to cut and mark a number or name or logo. This gives a near clean result.
This particular technique does require some advance notice due to the materials involved and the Laser cutting process. Laser cutting is very versatile. Nearly any surface material can be etched including perspex, metal and various wood surfaces can be etched, cut or stencilled to brand or decorate.
