The humble box has come a long way from its origins as nondescript packaging. Box it Up Graphic Express demonstrates the multitude of ways cardboard, wood, and other boxes and crates have flourished in mediums beyond simple wrapping and storage. Installations featuring multicolored storage containers, reusable cardboard furniture, and cardboard pop-up showcased in chapters Stack itUp, Open it Up, and Wrap it Up. Projects as small as to-go fondu kits, large as fully functional cardboard theatrical stages, friendly as blocky cardboard friends and sophisticated as Nike shoeboxes modeled after 1980s boom boxes fill the pages, documented with bright, high-quality images. Full of constructions that are imaginative and downright fun, Box it Up proves that when it comes to innovative design, the humble box is incredibly versatile.
