Zespa Media Launches Artwork Licensing Project


Zespa Media announces an exclusive partnership with top creative licensing agency, This is Iris (“Iris”), to launch the Artwork Licensing Project bringing original images, designs and IP from established international artists to the Chinese market.

Iris is an international creative licensing agency working 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.

Leveraging its IP expertise and commercial network in China, Zespa Media will generate licensing opportunities for the artists and designers in Iris’s portfolio in the rapidly growing Chinese market.

Zespa Media and This is Iris recently held a joint exhibition at the China Licensing Expo in Shanghai, bringing the works of twelve selected international artists to China for the first time.

The successful exhibition generated significant interests among Chinese clients which Zespa Media has already converted into licensing partnerships with leading brands and art agencies across the country.

Zespa Media is working closely with Chinese licensing partners on several projects in the pipeline.

Miss Jean Dong, Chairman of Zespa Media, said: “There is a huge unmet commercial demand in China for unique and original art designs to enhance all kinds of consumer products. This exciting new partnership positions us to serve this growing need and create new kinds of commercial opportunities for the talented artists and designers working with Iris.”
