Crescent Lodge has designed a signpost which made its debut in north London’s Islington last week. Erected by local tourism agency Discover Islington, the 2.4m-high sign features a cut-through i and sports a map highlighting local attractions. The sign is sponsored by the nearby Business Design Centre. Discover Islington hopes more of the signs will be erected in the borough.

Each sign will be designed to fit in with its specific local environment.
