Well, where do we begin with this one! Aico, a long term client of ours, approached us with their latest challenge: creating a giant 3D locomotive with carriages for the annual Oswestry Christmas Parade. Challenge accepted!
The design team got to work to create what was then known as ‘The Aico Express’.. a 30ft long custom built wooden structure, printed and wrapped with graphics inspired by ‘The Polar Express’. The team drafted up the concept, and once approved we cracked on with construction, painting, printing and wrapping. Once fully wrapped, the structure was lifted up onto the truck, and decorated with twinkling fairy lights and an artificial snow machine!
Aico colleagues all dressed up as passengers, elves, conductors and Santa Claus, and hopped aboard the Aico Express to head through Oswestry Town. We were so pleased to later hear that this won Best Commercial Float! All of the floats looked absolutely fantastic, a huge well done to all involved!
