That means hello in Polari, a not-quite-forgot slang which was popular with actors, circus folk, wrestlers, sailors, criminals and especially the gay subculture up to about the 1970s.

Polari is a design practice which encompasses graphics, identity, creative campaigns, print, editorial and websites. We’re all about communication. So take the weight off your lallies and have a troll ’round our work.
