Latest Work – Famous Five souvenir DVD box set
Here’s something for lovers of classic TV adventure. The Famous Five is a British television series based on the children’s books of the same name by Enid Blyton. It was broadcast on ITV over two series in 1978 and 1979. It was produced by Southern Television in 26 half-hour episodes. Recently our client Reel Corporation in collaboration with Roadshow, commissioned T-Rex Art to design a collector’s souvenir box set of The Famous Five complete TV series. Besides the inclusion of the entire DVD Set, the box set also contains a number of goodies including a full size Chrome Torch, a club members Badge, 6 vintage Postcards featuring original art from the books and a 32 Famous Five full colour Collectors Handbook with tons of fun facts, production notes, location sites and an in-depth Enid Blyton biography.
The design instruction for T-Rex Art was to design the set and all the items to look vintage so as to be consistent with the show’s age and feel. Thus the use of sepia tones, and ‘old school’ style illustration styles.
