Hi fellows foresters! I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week and have been enjoying all the glorious Autumnal colours as much as I have!
I wanted to take a moment today to tell you more about the wonderful agents I have had the pleasure in working with over the past year (another reason why I’ve been quiet here on my blog and in my Etsy shop) who represent my high-concept Arts & Lifestyle Brand DEER LITTLE FOREST
The Iris team work alongside a variety of established artists, designers and IP developers to extend their ever growing international licensing programs.
Members of the Iris team have worked creatively with names such as Fox, Disney, Hit, BBC, and Aardman and created ranges for retailers direct, working across many category fields including stationery, gifts, apparel, publishing and packaging, as well as the business side of the industry, experience extends to brand development, contract negotiation, marketing and PR.
We were also delighted to sign with the wonderful Jonathan Symington, from the The Lantic Group in the UNITED STATES. Here’s a brilliant press piece on Jonathan
Jonathan is the former Vice President and general manager of Global Entertainment licensing at Disney Consumer Products and set up the Lantic group, a boutique business consultancy specialising in building brands through products launches, licensing strategies and International expansion.
Most recently we signed with the amazing Mr. Nobutaka Nagai at Honmoku File, Ltd. in JAPAN. We had the pleasure of meeting the Honmoku team at the Brand Licensing Europe Show and were beyond excited to discuss our latest project with them! Here’s a press piece on our amazing news!
So as you can imagine, We’ve been really busy with our expanding team of AWESOME agents and we look forward to all the exciting collaborations that lay ahead.
We’re really looking forward to 2019 when the first of the DEER LITTLE FOREST Theme parks will open. It feels quire surreal at the moment, so until then I’m going to keep busy creating artwork for this project and imagining my DEER LITTLE FOREST friends within this magical setting! Looking forward to the day when I visit parks for myself and see how my forest friends are settling in ! 😉
Happy weekends everyone!
Big Bear Hugs! Xx
