FiveToNine Design teamed up with Openshaw Design to produce temporary alternative street signs with a local slant for the Deptford Design Festival 2007 (part of London Design Festival). They were installed along Creekside, London SE8, during the festival.

Here we present a visual record of the project, alongside those design concepts that – for various reasons – never made it into production.

We set out to not only promote the festival (by flagging up the main venues) and the local area, but also to take a more critical look at Deptford, warts an' all.

Limited edition t-shirts featuring three of the signs were for sale at the festival and are available whilst stocks last, by emailing info@se8signs.co.uk. Shirts cost £10 and come in 5 sizes: Men's XL, L, M, and Women's L & M (fitted with capsleeves).

If you have any suggestions for future signs please email your ideas to info@se8signs.co.uk
