Our concept exploration led us all the way back to 1988 what better way to reintroduce Chucky than by taking him to where his legacy began - a toy store after dark.

"Our first challenge, we needed to find an old toy store
- or build one."


Luckily we had a Chucky superfan on staff who
happened to have a Good Guy doll replica for us to
model from. Don't worry - we removed all sharp
objects before letting him out of the box.


Taking us back to the familiar toy store allowed us to
hide lots of Easter eggs. The horror superstar's
30-year legacy travels down the aisle with us,
before landing on the digital clock displaying "2021"
- the release date for the new TV series.


The "Playland" neon sign naturally became the
treatment for the Chucky and network logos.
The colorful fluorescent lights sinisterly glitched to
blood red.


The iconic box art for the "Good Guys" doll served as the inspiration for the rest of the typography.
