Ferly, a global entertainment company, is taking on the Nordic licensing rights and European publishing rights of Koko Rose Media’s Deer Little Forest brand.
Together, Koko Rose Media and Ferly will work to exploit the licensing of the kids-oriented arts and lifestyle brand in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland, and publishing assets across traditional category lines in Europe, excluding the U.K. The companies will also look to create entirely new Deer Little Forest content on various platforms. Additionally, Ferly plans to collaborate with other Deer Little Forest agents on the creation and representation of publishing content such as board, activity and story books.
Heikki Laaninen, head of licensing at Ferly, said: “We’re excited to work with Koko Rose Media on their innovative brand, Deer Little Forest. This is the kind of vibrant storytelling and artistic design that we believe will absolutely appeal to Nordic audiences.”
Lisa Hryniewicz, managing director of Koko Rose Media, added: “We are thrilled to be working with the out-of-the-box thinkers at Ferly. Ferly’s team has a rare combination of progressive strategy and traditional creativity, ideal for taking high-quality properties to the top of a competitive industry. Ferly also has a very flexible and responsive structure, able to respond and adapt quickly to a challenging and evolving market. We know that Deer Little Forest is in the best hands possible!”
