MEDIA LICENSING

Licensing is our newest flagship and can offer you thousands in savings. It’s the fastest, safest, most affordable way to get the industry's best graphic design, broadcast motion design and music soundtrack for your project.

Licensing can differ depending on intended usage. Your producer will help with acquiring the license that is appropriate for each project. For most instances a regular license is adequate. It provides the right to integrate artwork into your project and then a playback that is free for your customers to watch. When a designer allows, an extended license grants additional rights for usage of products you intend to sell for profit that somehow include the licensed media.

With licensing the trade-off is that licensed design elements are often re-sold again to other clients wanting big savings. The most common objection to licensing is that other businesses may have similar design or music. However, we have found, after making changes to music, logos, colors, video clips, spokesmodels and the overall message the lay-person will barely be able to recognize the similarities.

Your advantages are substantial. Here’s an example:

Building a custom 3-D environment with animated elements and camera moves can easily cost $5,000 - $10,000. Especially when you want quality that stands up against a national spot. When you license that same broadcast motion graphic design with the Extended License at approximately $350.00, and the Regular License approximately $35.00, you start to see how licensing can rapidly move your business to the forefront of your competitive marketplace.

Delivery time on that design is immediate (not 45-90 days). What you expect to receive is reliable and the quality is always high end. Our designers are among the best in the world. Click next below to see the legal terms for the different licenses:
