Riggs Ward, the Library of Congress, and the Churchill Archives Centre created the first comprehensive exhibition of Winston Churchill material in the United States. The exhibit incorporated more than 200 items, including handwritten letters sent between Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt. RWD evoked the era of Churchill's greatest influence by designing wall structures that were indicative of London in the 1930's. They had a strong, clean presence that also connected well with Churchill's military past. Audio stations allowed visitors to experience Churchill delivering some of his most famous speeches, while video kiosks gave visual expression to the ways in which Churchill's words continue to influence people today. The RWD team also developed a logo, brochure and poster that underscored the historical significance of Churchill's life and work.
