Task: to create beautiful street plates.

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.
