Sage House Presents SMILEY Installation and Showcase of Classic Artist Projects at LEC 2023

SHANGHAI, June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Sage House, a Hong Kong-based creative agency, participated in Licensing Expo China (LEC) in Shanghai from June 28-30, 2023. With the ambition to forge connections with diverse media outlets, brands and artists, the agency orchestrated a series of captivating on-site activities during the event with the aim of seizing this invaluable occasion to explore the infinite possibilities for brand licensing and artistic creativity in the context of today’s business culture.

As an industry expert with a long-standing commitment to IP collaboration, Sage House has successfully collaborated with many institutions and brands both at home and abroad, engaging in a large number of classic IP projects. In addition to facilitating connections between legendary artists and brands, the agency also offers creative insights and strategic approaches to ensure maximum value is derived from both brands and IPs involved in these collaborative ventures.
Sage House has unveiled an exciting initiative at LEC 2023, introducing a dedicated SMILEY zone in collaboration with the renowned brand. This strategic partnership aims to extend the reach of SMILEY’s thrilling collaborations to a wider array of brands. A striking and expansive SMILEY installation has been meticulously crafted on the show floor, drawing the attention of expo attendees.
Over the past two years, the Sage House team has successfully executed several cross-border co-branding projects that have attracted industry attention and garnered several global awards. Whether it was introducing the captivating artwork of Saudi Arabian artist Rashed Al Shashai – “The Gate to the East”, to China’s inland mountain city of Chongqing, or building an innovative partnership between vintage cartoon characters and fashion labels, Sage House is dedicated to increasing the visibility and awareness of these stories and their unique qualities. As a result, the company presented these classic projects alongside its artists’ creations at the event, including the nostalgic retro-style Chengdu IFS (International Finance Square) Donald Duck Ice Shop Theme Exhibition, China’s first Peanuts 70th Anniversary Global Artist Collective-themed installation and event, Dream A Big Dream, SNOOPY X BROADCAST co-branded pop-up shop, and Ryuji Kamiyama solo exhibition, among others.

Co-founders Mavis Mak and Jackie Lui, while reflecting on the years of fruitful co-branding endeavors, said, “An IP agent’s role extends beyond the mere collaboration between brands and artists; it is also about recognizing the distinctiveness of each brand and artist, leveraging ingenuity and creativity to amplify the impact, and exploring the infinite possibilities of art through authorized re-creation”. Sage House wholeheartedly embodies this IP agent model, driving their unwavering pursuit of these ideals. 
More opportunities lie ahead. Sage House became the exclusive Chinese partner of 2023 UNKNOWN ASIA earlier this year. Chinese artists were offered a unique opportunity to participate in the international art fair, and the winners will have a chance to showcase their work as official exhibitors at UNKNOWN ASIA in Osaka, Japan schedule for September 15-17 this fall.
Sage House firmly believes that crossover and creatives cooperation should encompass more than just introducing overseas artists to China. By closely collaborating with international partners, the agency also creates new opportunities for Chinese brands to make their mark on the world stage. With a focus on popular marketing campaigns and innovative communication approaches, Sage House envisions a borderless exchange environment that fosters seamless interactions between Chinese artists and the global community.
