The famous League of Gentlemen road signs that we all recognise from the original series broadcast in the 1990s, had to be redesigned for the 2017 special. Acme were asked to make sure they were as close to the original as possible.
Acme Graphics designed and produced signage for various locations for the shoot of Mitchell & Webb’s “Back. Here are a few screenshot of cut vinyl and designed logos for a bakery, food factory, DIY store, funeral home, cafe and a pub. All spotted in these screenshots taken from the first series of the comedy.
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!
Acme design logos for everything from cups to pubs. Logos for shops, companies cut from vinyl and printed on merchandise or signage on any production.
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.
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!
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.
Here is a selection of graphic designs and stills from the production:
We designed and printed graphics for the van, Butchers Shop exterior and interior, Odeon cinema, Cafe Nero, Music venue and Italian restaurant.
Acme Graphics have supplied graphics props for commercials over the past 15 years.
