Bringing the Box Plymouth to life
Leach was thrilled to produce and install the entire graphic suite to help to bring The Box at Plymouth to life, commemorating the city’s remarkable history, maritime culture and housing the art, archives and artifacts that have been collected over centuries.
It was fundamental to work closely and engage all stakeholders on this project, particularly throughout the COVID-19 national lockdown which forced the site to close just two months before the planned opening date. As a result deadlines were tighter, and Leach’s production and installation team manages to turn graphics around and install them in record time, insuring a timely opening of the museums.
Leach produced and installed over 3000 graphics across 11 galleries. This included 2106 individually printed American maple panels for the Mayflower 400: Legend and Legacy gallery – the largest-ever commemorative Mayflower exhibition.
Thorough prototype sessions gave the designer confidence that Leach had the experience and attitude to complete this project to a high standard. Fourteen different print production methods were used in total, including:
- Screen prints
- Frosted vinyl decals
- Mermet banners
- Acrylic faced lightboxes
- Fabric faced lightboxes
- Showtex voile banners
- Floor vinyl
- Acrylic labels
- Printed Corian
- Two large etched Corian panels
- Printed Forex
- Printed Dibond
- Large-format Titan wallcoverings
- Printed MDF panels
The Box opened its doors to the public in September 2020 with Leach’s stunning display graphics complementing the museums character perfectly.
