We have been working on Dead Squad for well over a year now and are really looking forward to sharing some of the behind the scenes adventures we have been having. In the meantime we have the new poster for the movie which has a release date of October 23rd 2018.
We worked up quite a few posters for the movie, with the director and distributors going for a polish on one of our initial concept designs. David turned out a fantastic piece based on Joe’s concept work, my idea and John’s initial sketch, this really was a collaborative effort that really brings the elements to life and delivers a movie poster design that captures the mystery of the films narrative and the impending doom that awaits our heroes.
We hope you like!
We have worked with Endoline for many years, delivering a host of services from video content to website design as well as exhibition stand design. The hardest task when working with a long standing client is continuing to push the artistic boundaries, keep the designs fresh and engaging but also fully focused on the core brand ideals.
This year for the PPMA exhibition at the Birmingham NEC, the marketing head at Endoline wanted to keep the idea clean but modern, and so we built on the existing CAD artwork and created a minimalist design that felt organic as well as futuristic, but at the same time understated.
We think the design stands out well, was true to the brief and the client was very happy.
We produced this film for Uniled – a leading provider of digital signage service and repair in the UK.
An underlying narrative tells the story of a young boy who views a digital signage screen from his apartment building everyday until one evening the screen malfunctions. Through the animated medium, stylised to show the only colour on offer is that provided by the screens themselves, we show the vast numbers of repairs required throughout the city and how fast, capable and reliant Uniled are in their service. The film culminates in the young boy watching as the screen comes back to life and his obsession becomes apparent.
This film was a complicated piece as there was a narrative that had to flow under a driven corporate message. A lot of artwork was needed to create a parallax environment that kept the camera moving and a murky colour palette that is juxtaposed by the bright colours of the screens that continue to burn through the night with the help of Uniled’s exceptional services.
