Made in Telok Ayer

by Temasek Polytechnic, School of Design

Made in Telok Ayer is a study of street signages in a town named Telok Ayer (Singapore). Many street signages tell a story, and taking a semiotic approach uncovers the history of the area it lies in. We also get to understand the lifestyle and values of society at the time the signages are used, and with this, the unique identity of the town becomes apparent. With a collection of over 100 signages in Telok Ayer, this publication offers a glimpse into the lifestyle of the people, activities and history of the town.
