POP UP
PERFECTION

Brixen & Sons (brixen.com), a PSP
based in Santa Ana, California, was
asked to turn a vacant building in
Chicago into an eye-catching pop-up
location for the launch of Virgil Abloh's
Fall/Winter 2019 Louis Vuitton Men's
Collection. It was a fluid, expansive
project that started with an original
request to install designs on a large
interior brick wall. Louis Vuitton liked
it so much they asked the shop to
decorate the entire outside of the
building, three days before the event.
In order to make this happen, the exterior of the building needed to be expeditiously painted fluorescent orange
while Brixen & Sons produced more
vinyl monograms at their headquarters
in California. The late-breaking request
required Corey Brixen, owner of Brixen &
Sons, to fly to Chicago and hand deliver
the monograms to help the crew finish
the exterior of the building during the

final two days of installation.
Here's the kicker: all of the graphic elements were screen printed with a color
that Brixen & Sons created in their shop
using Nazdar 3600 Series UV Screen Ink
with fluorescent DayGlo orange powder pigment added. They flood coated
54- by 118-inch sheets of 3M's IJ8624
Scotchcal graphic film for textured surfaces on an M&R Processor II E inline
screen press and laminated them with
3M 8524 Scotchcal Luster overlaminate.
Finally, they kiss-cut all the different
shapes on a Z√ľnd G3 digital cutter. A
paper masking was done on each large
kiss-cut sheet; the pieces were then cut
apart by hand for packing and shipping.
The actual installation was done by a
three-person crew using heat guns, propane torches, and a lot of creative elbow
grease. They completed the entire project in just four days, and the event was a
huge success.
