As we toured the Our Linen Stories exhibition, it became clear that there are lots of elements that make up the ecology of design. This section of the exhibition celebrates some of the ways in which we can support designers to generate interest and income for their local communities.
For example this can be done by introducing young children to a new technique for the first time, or supporting established designers who are forging a career for themselves. There are many ways that we can nurture design in the linen industry, and enhance local communities in the process.
This chapter of our exhibition looks at linen retail. Below you can see a couple of examples of contemporary logos and marketing materials for linen producers. These give a glimpse into the graphic design around selling linen.
