Bambi 2017, Berlin
AND THE WINNER IS...
The 69th BAMBI award ceremony took place on Thursday 16th, November 2017, at the Theater am Potsdamer Platz in Berlin with around 800 high-profile guests.
On behalf of We make it GmbH, PPS. supported the host Hubert Burda Media in cooperation with the two companies Wieder Design and JG & Partner.
The materials Dekotex 250 UV, Airtex, film and Forex were used for Germany’s most prestigious media award. Ninety-five percent of the printing was carried out by means of UV printing and the remaining five percent by latex printing. The high print quality was one of the key requirements to achieve the unmistakeable BAMBI golden colour. Even perfect ‘last minute’ deliveries were no problem at all for our team.
The production timeframe proved to be a challenge, since this was also when all large-format printing machines in Berlin were being moved to a new hall. PPS. therefore opted to delegate a substantial portion of production to our location in Cologne. As identical high-quality machines with the same inks as those in Berlin are also available in Cologne, we were able to ensure excellent print quality throughout the entire project. The sharing of production between the two locations made this assignment particularly interesting.
The famous ‘Red Carpet’ – albeit in black this year – was accompanied by a single-piece press wall spanning 46 metres in length. This scene became an impressive backdrop for the press parade of arriving guests and for the photoshoot of award-winners during the live broadcast.
