Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky is a small cozy town in the Kiev region with population of 30 000 and a rich history. Thanks to its abundant historic monuments and landmarks it is recognized as a museum city. On request of the city administration and Gorodskie Idei advocacy group street and house plates for Pereyaslav-Khmelnytsky were created at the studio.
Plates with street names in Ukrainian and English, 800×200 mm (31,5″×7,9″)
The plates were handmade at a Dutch factory using 1,5 mm (1/16″) steel coated with durable enamel. They were made slightly convex to give them a nice visual volume.
House number plates, 300×200 mm (11,8″×7,9″). The coating is made strong by sequential baking of individual layers of colored enamel at 800 °C (1472 °F)
A plate in section
Mikhail Sikorsky—Ukranian national hero, founder of many of Pereyaslav’s museums—lived on Kovalskaya ul. 8a. Special colored plates were used to distinguish his house.
