Best Group celebrates Christmas Melbourne Style!

By Dec 20 2012 News No Comments
Its Christmas 2012, and the end of yet another year. They seem to just fly by these days…In true style, the Best Group team love getting amongst the festive spirit, and as our luck would have it, we were again extremely fortunate to work with the City of Melbourne Christmas team on the development and delivery of the city’s newest decoration addition for 2012.Building on the success of a new Christmas decoration program in 2011; the City of Melbourne embarked on transforming Bourke Street Mall into ‘Jingle Bell’ mall!

Working within the constraints of hanging weight limits from the existing Bourke Street Mall net above the tram lines, Best Group worked with engineering specifications to develop a suitable weighted product that would enable the vast quantity to be installed (together with rows of the original star decorations). The process involved sampling, working with the creative agency and vacuum moulders to effectively distort flat artwork into correct appearance once moulded (printed flat) and to achieve the right balance of translucency for illumination.

Best Group successfully delivered 800 moulded and printed acrylic bells with light fittings in record time for installation as part of the 2013 City of Melbourne Christmas Decoration program.

The result is one that has brought the Bourke Street Mall to life; adds to the city Christmas vibe and one that will be entrenched in Melbourne’s Christmas spirit for years to come.
