Morrisons Christmas Advert Christmas Signs

We have made some festive graphic props and signs for the 2017 Morrisons Christmas Advert. We can create signs and blackboards that are printed  rather than wooden and hand painted by scenic artists. Acme can create any effect digitally to save you time and money.

Chalkboards without any messy chalk!

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!

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.

Graphic design for 100 metres of barrier signage

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!

O2 – Be More Dog – Tail Wag commercial graphics

Earlier this year we were commissioned to design and print a wide range of props, signs and graphics for the O2 be More Dog commercial.
