NFTs beyond digital art

NFTs are here and they will not be going away any time soon. By now I’m sure you have some rough idea what they are and, if you are like me, are still in disbelief that JPGs are selling for millions of dollars.  Is that all NFTs are? This is the question that has been nagging at me ever since watching License Global’s WTF NFT with speakers Trevor George, Zach Bruch, Cuy Sheffield, and Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary was the one […] Read More

I have been thoroughly impressed with her along with her agency, Bits + Pixels and am proud to have them on the Tasty Peach team. How […] Read More

Did the 80’s Ever Go Away?

Since I started my career in licensing, specifically in apparel, the 80s have almost never gone away, though we’ve had glimpses of 90s retro here and there as generations move into adulthood and are able to shop for themselves. To me it’s ironic to see articles about the 80’s coming back when I’m pretty sure they never fully left us. I look around and see spandex leggings everywhere, even though maybe I don’t see legwarmers as much. I see neon […] Read More

Blast From the Past: Retro Wave

Retro branding/marketing is back and hotter than ever, in particular, the  80’s/90’s Digital Retro Style also known as “Retro Wave” is here and thriving.  In honor of the start of the school year, the term for this style of marketing is called “nostalgia marketing.”  The goal of nostalgia marketing is to invoke a sense of familiarity, connection, and comfort. I can’t imagine a more perfect time than the pandemic to try to capture those feelings. Take a look around and […] Read More

It’s Who You Know: Women In Licensing featuring Deena Boykin

One of the first top level executives I remember meeting in the licensing world was Deena Boykin. It was probably the second time I had visited New York in my first licensing role at Mighty Fine.

When Deena joined our meeting, I felt honored to be in her presence. She was everything I aspired to be. […] Read More

It’s Who You Know: Women In Licensing featuring Anita Castellar

I amazes me how many people in licensing I have met at licensing events without ever having our paths cross in terms of deal making. This might be one of the greatest things about licensing to me. We all know each other. We’re always looking for ways to work together. Anita Castellar is one of those people for me. One day, I hope we will get to do a deal together or work on something collaboratively. In the meantime, I […] Read More
