About The City Works

Originally founded in London before moving to Vienna, we’ve worked with a variety of clientele to create bespoke city illustrations. We also produce modern souvenir collections using our unique designs.

We have a detailed yet flexible style that attracts people’s attention. Magazines, products, branding and even large wall murals have featured our cities. We’ve worked alongside museums, libraries, stores, and companies. Furthermore, we’ve published books containing our bespoke city illustrations.

“Sylvia and Rowan are not only talented illustrators and designers, they hit deadlines with ease and made the whole process a really fun and rewarding experience. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.” Kate Polland, Hardie Grant Publishing

Custom Works

Our clients over the years have included the National Gallery London, Bruges Museums, Royal Albert Hall, Huawei, and the University of Oxford.

One example project is Museum of London. The retail arm of the museum approached us to create a custom London drawing. The result was a colourful, attractive skyline. Because of the flexibility of the design, it was applied to a comprehensive stationery range. Shortly afterwards, the collection became available from their museum shop.

Because we’re a team with a Graphic Design background, we’re able to produce city illustrations with a lot of detail within tight deadlines. Naturally, we stay within budget and communicate with our clients during every step of the design process.
