Pengetout is a year-long initiative pop-up shop and workspace where nine new and expanding local businesses will share space to sell interesting products and services.

The project is being delivered by Sally Williams from Retail Revival Ltd, who is well used to opening pop-up shops in London and funded by London Borough of Bromley and as part of their ‘Penge, Open for Business’ programme which also provides free training and support to new and existing local businesses.

Sally contacted us to help with the branding and signage for the venture. We had just finished a report on Penge high street for the council and had already given branding advice workshops to local businesses, so it was nice to be involved in the next stage of the development for Penge High Street. The deadlines were tight in both time and budget, but we delivered on time and budget.

The signage reflects the temporary nature of the store. It’s made out of off the peg letters and stencils on a background of pallets from various sources including Book Aid (who were happy for the space once the pallets had been taken away). They showed us around while we were there. The do great work, you can see more of what they do here: BOOK AID

The original visuals showing the shop before and after looked like this:

We think they are pretty close the finished thing.

It was opened by The Mayor of Bromley, Councillor Ian Payne who cut a ribbon to officially declare the venture open. There was a real buzz and the opening with really positive feedback. You can find out more about the pop-up here:
