The shopfronts along Redchurch Street will be decorated with vinyl images and a QR code to discover the work of local designers, artists and craftspeople

Graphic images of ‘Cabinets of Curiosities’ will go up in the shop windows along Redchurch Street from September 12.

Each vinyl sticker includes a QR code to connect visitors with an online showcase for a local designer, artist or craftsperson.

The Virtual Windows scheme is part of the Shoreditch Design Triangle, an outpost of the London Design Festival, to support the area’s treasure trove of creative talent and re-energise the street post-Covid.

Visitors can learn more about each creative and the history of Redchurch Street by downloading the code.
