The Zolan Company is a boutique licensing agency with over thirty years experience in licensing and co-branding. We represent internationally acclaimed Artists and Designers, Illustrators, Photographers, Heritage brands and non-acclaimed young artists. We match our experience in licensing, design, and consulting to develop long term partnerships between Agency, Licensor and Licensee.
We have a passion to create original and imaginative art and products that awaken happiness and a feel good sensation. Our select team of international artists and designers bring a unique and creative dimension to their art inspired by their cultures and their experiences with all of us sharing the same values to inspire beauty through art.
We aspire to be a company of poetry and artistry filled with positivity and light.
The Zolan Company began licensing in 1985 with one artist, Donald Zolan. It was one of the first art agencies to co brand fine art with global iconic brands. The Zolan brand with over 41 years in the licensing industry is recognized as a Heritage Children’s Art Brand leaving a legacy to the world inspiring each of us to discover the child within. Zolan set the high standard for the agency with his values and philosophy about art and business. Following in his footsteps, our agency has expanded to also include young contemporary artists who share these same values.
Social licensing is an important cornerstone to our values to nurture a positive business with social responsibility. We strongly support all of our Artists and Designers in their programs to give back to humanity. Our Zolan brand is dedicated to helping children’s causes through licensing the art of Donald Zolan who strongly believed in making a better world for our children.
Supporting women’s and children’s projects has been a key mission of the Ivana Helsinki brand which is involved in worldwide social projects supporting women and children’s causes. Recently a collection of hand made knits by Peruvian women were presented at New York Fashion Week.
Anekke, an inspirational character brand from Spain, has been very active in support of Save the Children.
We welcome all opportunities to expand our social licensing programs in helping women and children.
Our mission is to create and to develop art brands into recognized consumer brands working in conjunction with our Licensing partners to create art styles for their market, to adapt and create designs to the products, to share our resources of creativity and ideas, and to market to the broadest consumer base while maintaining the value and integrity of the brands.
And, we hope to inspire and encourage young artists to achieve their dreams.
