The Ghostsigns Tours App brings the popular Ghostsigns Walking Tours to your mobile device, for enjoyment at street level, or from the comfort of your own home. A mixture of contemporary and archival photography is used to tell the stories behind these fading advertisements of old, with text and narration from your guide, Sam Roberts.
The app is free to download for iPhone and Android devices, with in-app purchases for individual tours. Each tour will be priced at $5.99, with a special 50% discount applicable across the duration of the London Design Festival, 17-25 September 2016.
The app officially launched with the Bankside Ghostsigns Walk at the 2016 London Design Festival, accompanied by a series of events as part of the Light Capsules collaboration between Ghostsigns and Craig Winslow.
