Koko Rose Media and Empire Multimedia are launching art and lifestyle brand Deer Little Forest and Preschool brand Flora of the Forest at the Hong Kong Licensing Fair. Both the brands are created by illustrator and Koko Rose creative director Jo Rose.
“Deer Little Forest and Flora of the Forest are whimsical brands that are a natural for merchandise and promotional licensing in SEA and Greater China,” said Hubert Co, President of Empire Multimedia. “The great artwork together with the timely back-to-nature and go-green themes will give products an added edge for 2017 and beyond. We know the best is yet to come!”
With offices across Asia and over 30 years of experience, Empire Multimedia is one of the largest and most respected licensing agencies in the region, representing TV shows, video games, corporate brands, feature films and personalities. In addition to traditional licensing, Empire Multimedia is known for its dynamic and multi-pronged approach to brand building through creative promotions, on-line marketing, competitions, QSR’s, and special events.
“We are thrilled that Deer Little Forest and Flora are being presented by such a renowned agency at this essential licensing show,” added Lisa Hryniewicz, Managing Director of Koko Rose Media. “We believe that Jo’s unique and distinct designs will have tremendous appeal in Asia, and are utterly confident that Empire is the company to make them a lasting success.”
Launched as a licensing brand in 2013 at BLE, Deer Little Forest originally found popularity as greeting cards in high-end UK retailers such as Harrods, Liberty, John Lewis, Selfridges, Paperchase, and Rizzoli Book Shop in Somerset House.
