Retail for Museums & Galleries: Linescapes

This month we’re celebrating those designers and makers whose inspirational work really suits the special environments of museum and gallery retailers. In normal times we would be with our partners at the Association for Cultural Enterprises and their annual showcase in Harrogate right now,  showing a dozen clever designers and their beautifully made objects and artworks. We might not be at the ACE show in body but we are most certainly there in spirit, and we invite you to browse each of our 12 makers’ stands, admire their work and consider the pieces that make museum retail special. You can also contact all of these makers to buy all work directly.

Our series kicks off with Linescapes, who specialise in highly detailed CAD architectural portraits of iconic buildings and landmarks. Set up in 2014 by Amalia Sanchez de la Blanca, Linescapes offers a range of architecture-inspired prints, cards and gifts.

Linescapes’ beautifully crafted ranges are constantly growing with drawings of buildings that mean something to people, whether it’s a cultural landmark, an architecturally significant structure or a bespoke house portrait. Amalia has built a collection of over 50 illustrations which are available from stock. She also carries out commissions for private individuals, professionals and large organisations. Amalia’s background as an architect and consequent attention to detail, along with her trademark style ensures that all her products sit well together in an elegant and understated collection.

Amalia says, “Cultural venues are increasingly reliant on the income provided by their shops both physical and online, therefore ensuring they offer a variety of high quality and original products is paramount. Capitalising on their best assets is important, especially if the venue is set within an iconic building. Linescapes can help by creating exquisite illustrations of their buildings that can be used to decorate a myriad of gift products.”
