Director John Turner invited us to design the film titles, campaign and promotional materials for his short film ‘The Ragtop Boys’, the film which is in the style of an observational documentary follows a British 'greaser gang' on their last weekend together, the last days of the gang being ready to set the world on fire before they'd never see each other again.
Following researching and interviewing real 1970's Greaser Gangs we designed the film titles and campaign from the gang’s perspective. All elements of the campaign were designed as if the Ragtop Boys had made everything themselves.
Real Greaser Gangs in Chicago had ‘gang calling cards’; for the film titles each of the Ragtop Boys where introduced with their own personalised calling card.
