Museums, Galleries, religious venues and stately homes are increasingly reliant on the income provided by their shops. Therefore ensuring they offer a variety of high quality and original products is paramount. Capitalising on their best assets is one way of doing it especially if the museum or gallery is set within an iconic building.
Linescapes can help by creating unique collections that will allow visitors to be reminded of their experience by tapping into the emotional connection they feel with the venue. By offering collections featuring exquisite illustrations of their buildings, shops can ensure they offer the ideal products for their visitors, whether they are a couple that regularly visit cultural venues, a holiday maker choosing a memento of their trip, or a visitor passionate about the venue content or the building.
Our illustrations can be used to decorate a myriad of products including coasters, tea towels, magnets, cards, mugs, cushions, prints, and much more. Linescapes offers a personalised approach to client’s needs and budget. If you are looking to commission an artwork we’re here to help.
