NoChintz got into the Christmas spirit early this year, as we were asked to design the decorations for the Albert Square Christmas tree for Manchester City Council.
The Christmas decorations, in collaboration with the City Council, incorporated ideas from the ‘I LOVE MCR’ campaign launched earlier in the year.
Giant baubles in red, white and black; the campaign logo colours, had the phrase ‘MCR LOVES XMAS’ and Mancunian quotes on them.
Festive cut out shapes including deers and stars were used, as well as snow filled transparent baubles.
The Christmas tree lights were switched on along with the other decorations around the city, in what turned out to be Manchester’s biggest ever light switch-on. Over 20,000 people packed into Albert Square to watch pop stars Nicola Roberts and Tinchy Stryder light up the city.
