The City Works is an illustration studio. Since launching in April 2015, they have created bespoke cityscapes for a variety of clients, including museums, galleries, retail outlets and publishers.
“We aspire to make beautiful mementos from places around the world, that live long in the memory, and last as long as the landmarks that they depict.”
The places we hold dear to us have their own character and their own stories to tell. From where we grew up, to where we settled down, to the places we visit, and those we still dream of seeing. In Spring 2015, The City Works set out on a journey to illustrate these places. City by city. Brick by brick.
Whether hand-drawing a cityscape or tying the ribbon on an order, attention to detail is the cornerstone of everything we embark upon. By combining research, quality craftsmanship and the finest materials, our designs are made to stand the test of time. Just like the landmarks we depict.
Our adventure so far has led to us being available in over 50 stores internationally. We’ve also partnered with museums, universities and publishers to create custom intricacies. Whether you’re a seasoned native, or a curious traveller – take a closer look, and see what you might see.
