Zespa Media Closes 1st Artwork Licensing Deal in China


Zespa Media has closed its first international artwork licensing deal just one month after attending the China Licensing Expo and launching its exclusive China partnership with This is Iris.

Zespa Media secured a licensing agreement for Israel’s award-wining design company House of Turnowsky (HOT) with China’s top convenience store brand, Family Mart.

Family Mart has over 1,400 stores across China and they are planning to launch a new range of products incorporating HOT’s striking original designs at their flagship stores.

“We are happy to start the New Year with the new partnership with Family Mart”, said Iris Parizer, HOT Licensing Manager, “I hope this is the start of a long and successful working relationship with productive and successful results”.

“We are really pleased to have closed this first deal with This Is Iris for House of Turnowsky in China following our joint showcase at the CLE Shanghai less than 7 weeks ago. China is a huge market with tremendous consumer demand, and outstanding artists such as Turnowsky have great potential here. With our unique capabilities in local marketing, promotion and development, underpinned by the fantastic support and expertise provided unreservedly by This Is Iris, we look forward to delivering more deals and success for our clients in this exciting market”, said Jean Dong, Chairman of Zespa Media.
