Who We Are

Want to use your unused space?
We are Windowsketch. We live and breathe retail. We help you better use your unutilized (retail) space. Our job is to help you do a better job. How? By defining the future of retail. 

Our mission: To inspire, help to transform and create a future proof retail landscape.
Traditionally we collaborate with retailers, but we also translate and unroll retail concepts for hospitality, hotel chains, real estate and office buildings. You can use us as sparring partners, concept developers and transformation experts. We can do it all because we use a lean start-up approach. 

We believe in the power of retail
Brick and mortar retailers are now more than ever, facing fierce online competition. On top of that it can be challenging to get a hold on customer attention. The goal for retailers is to attract more customers and if possible, raise sales per customer. At Windowsketch we are able to offer innovative and engaging digital- and data driven solutions to fit your retail model, reaching more people, create an inviting store area, giving you the competitive edge.

The Story of Windowsketch















What About that Name?

Founded by Floris Sanders in 2014, Windowsketch offers retailers innovative digital customer experience solutions. Recognizing the unrealized potential in retail, Floris set out to provide tools to effectuate these changes by creating a start-up focusing on transforming and digitizing retail. 

In these early years, Windowsketch began as a spin-off from Sanders Retail Group, whose primary focus was on retail, real estate and investment. The start-up quickly grew into a scale-up setting with impressive launching customers and in 2020 appointed media management expert Thomas Thiadens to take over daily management. 

Since establishing Windowsketch has experienced exponential growth yet we too have felt the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing a reinvention. Luckily that is something we are good at thanks to our innovative and entrepreneurial qualities. One of our most recent developments is our ability to offer everything you could possibly need to run an unmanned store in your hotel lobby, office space or apartment building without requiring staff to be physically present.

We sketch a retail world of inspiration for your customers. 

Do you know Sketch Restaurant in London? This is where Floris was blown away by the power of experience for the first time. Sketch excels at engaging all of your senses during your night out, frequently updating their interior, to give you a pleasant surprise with each new visit. 

This is why we are called Windowsketch, as a reference towards Sketch. We wanted to bring this innovative thinking into the world of retail, connecting multi-dimensional approaches into our work, aiming to excel in customer experience

EXECUTE
Finally we will execute!
This is the fun part. Once we really understand your challenges and agreed on a sustainable successful transformation we go out there and do our thing!
