‘Year of the Rabbit’ is a spoof, police comedy-drama for Channel 4 set in Victorian London and stars BAFTA winner Matt Berry as the unlikely East End detective. The Victorian-themed sets required period graphics to set the scene, Acme Graphics were on hand throughout production and filming, we created many period items from matchboxes to signage.
The graphics we designed and made can be seen throughout the six-part series, however, it is episode 2 that showcases the majority of our hero prop designs. The episode centres on the case of a mysteries killer who takes the guise of the ‘Brick Man’. We received great visuals from Andy Riley who was one of the writers and used these as the starting point, every aspect of the hero posters were considered from the typography, colours and paper quality.
Additionally, we created supporting graphics including the human size Brick Man outline, set and location signage and vintage style photographs.
