District 9 was one of the most successful movies of 2009, nominated for 4 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp and produced by Peter Jackson, the film explored race relations through the language of science fiction. The guns, the aliens, the vehicles, the graphic language - the world of District 9 was designed and developed here at Weta Workshop.

Dimensions: 8.26" x 11.61" x 0.03" (W x H x D) 21 cm x 29.5 cm x 0.1 cm

Weight: 0.33 lbs (0.15 kg)

Facing extortionate food prices, eviction notices from the MNU, and violent threats from Nigerian gun runners, it’s no wonder the aliens want to keep humans out.

Typically, the streets of Johannesburg were littered with anti-alien signage. Though it’s clear the aliens weren’t cause for concern, the humans were.

Designed by Leri Greer, the same artist who contributed hundreds of pieces of conceptual art to the film.

When it came to signage for District 9, I literally looked up original apartheid signs from that era and deconstructed them, changing the designs to reflect our alien situation.
