Brand Licensing for Art & Design

Why Brand Licensing?

The art and design saw the largest growth of retail sales from licensed merchandise across the entire licensing industry in 2017, growing 39.4% from $1.78bn to $2.48bn. Brand licensing offers a huge opportunity for artists, illustrators, image galleries and photographers to generate new revenue streams. 

Art and design licensed products also offer retailers and manufacturers access to unique patterns, prints and designs that can create exclusive product ranges across many categories from stationery to homewares and apparel.
