Celessence, a leading UK technology approached Art + Science with the challenge of securing a publishing and distribution deal for their Children’s book line of scented Smelly Books, utilizing their proprietary, industry-leading microencapsulation scent technology. The technology extends well beyond children’s books to all print medium and all textiles, allowing manufacturers the ability to infuse their product with fragrance, freshness and actives delivering benefits. While Celessence had been used in consumer products for nearly two decades, they never “got the credit” for the benefit they were offering. It was time that the world learned the name Celessence and it became a known and respected brand.

Art + Science, with vision far beyond the "printed page" and recognizing that this proprietary feature was being commoditized, proposed a pivot in the company’s business strategy: to change the business as an OEM and supplier of a Chemical Ingredient to a licensed business offering proprietary technology and a brand that would resonate with consumers.

In a period of 3 years, the Celessence brand has been established as a legitimate brand. The brand will generate approximately $35MM at retail in 2013 and is on track to becoming a $100MM brand. A+S has signed over 20 licenses and introduced the technology to numerous categories ranging from Children’s Apparel and Bedding, to Toys, Puzzles, Storage, Automotive, and Luggage, to name a few. It has also aligned with several strategic partners including Febreze and Hello Kitty. Celessence branded product can be found on the shelf at nearly every major North American retailer.

"Art +  Science has changed the landscape of our business. They have enabled us to get our technology recognised as a brand and built it up so that it is known across America in different product categories.  We have an enviable collection of licensee partners all of whom have benefited from adding our technology to their brands and our brand Celessence has finally come out of the closet!  The team at Art + Science are fabulously committed  and driven and have shown a passionate dedication to growing the Celessence brand.  Thank you, Art + Science!" Shibani Mohnindra, Managing Director, Celessence Technologies.

Puff, the Magic Dragon
Recognizing the value of classic timeless brands, Art + Science approached Peter Yarrow and Lenny Lipton, the writers of the song "Puff the Magic Dragon", about representing Puff for licensing and merchandising.

Having seen the enormous commercial success of the Puff children’s book with CD, with well over a million sales, as well as other “like” properties, Art + Science wanted to represent this classic that has proved itself able to sustain a 50 year, multigenerational, timeless appeal. The Puff brand had never before been promoted with a comprehensive merchandising campaign and while "dragons live forever", brands, if they are not well promoted and given the proper attention, do not.

Yarrow and Lipton agreed that this was the right time to bring Puff back into the American and international zeitgeist. As Peter says, "There was no agency representing properties like Puff that had the taste, the imagination, the focus on quality, and the skills in marketing that could compare with Art + Science. We wanted A+S to work their "magic" for Puff. They had the drive, the respect for us as creators, the creativity and the know-how to bring Puff to the forefront. They are doing it and we are very grateful." Puff lives! And A+S is making this Classic Brand, "brand" New.

Lenny writes, "For years Peter and I considered how to go about extending the story of Puff and Jackie Paper beyond what has become a beloved song. The people themselves, in Japan, Germany, The United States, and countries all over the world adopted Puff without effort on our part. Puff belongs to the people and, in fact, many people think it's a folk song written in ancient days. We've always wanted Puff to continue on in a way that is true to the song but couldn't figure out how to do that until Art and Science stepped in. We're looking forward to future generations enjoying Puff due to their efforts."

10 Licensees on board.   Brand extensions into toys, games, social expressions, digital and even a live show set to debut in 2014.   The brand is now reaching more consumers than ever as parents and grandparents share their love of Puff with his 3rd Generation

In the Mailbox
Entrepreneurial company Puppy Bunny Pink (PBP) had a special relationship with the United States Postal Service and had come up with a unique idea of “shippable gifts.” It was great for the consumer in the lobby who forgot a special occasion and great for the USPS as it would lead to incremental revenue out of their lobbies. USPS loved it but PBP did not know what “it” was. Fortunately, Art + Science had the answers. A+S created all product concepts, designed everything and, sourced and oversaw production including securing a coveted 3rd party character license on behalf of PBP.

In The Mailbox products are now available in over 10,000 USPS lobbies. Products range from Holiday Themed Plush, Everyday Birthday Plush, Holiday Gifts and an exclusive partnership with The Walt Disney Company in a tribute to the “Art of Disney” stamps with exclusive In the Mail Box plush Mickey, Minnie and Pooh.

Marvista Entertainment
Marvista Entertainment approached Art + Science with a lofty challenge. The 16Wishes movie was debuting on the Disney Channel with multiple airings in only 8 weeks. They had not signed a licensee, met with a retailer or put together a merchandising strategy but with a hot star, Debbie Ryan, on the rise they knew there was an opportunity. But who could develop something so quickly without missing the opportunity?

Art + Science developed a style guide, met, pitched and signed Licensees, a national Retailer, and national sponsors, all of whom were committed to working on the tight timeline to make this happen.

A national promotion with dedicated end caps in all Borders and Walden Books stores (over 1000 doors) featuring 12 items from 6 different licensees that ranged from Publishing and Jewelry, to T-Shirts, Calendars and Light Up Journals occurred at retail for the movie’s debut. Add on a promotion with Rita’s Ice and a “give back” element via Jac Vanek and this program was a wish that came true for Marvista.

"Art + Science truly embodies the saying 'When you need something done, ask a busy agency.'  In record timing, Art + Science strategized, planned and executed a brilliant, complete and successful program that was beyond our wildest wishes… and without a fairy godmother!" Jodi Jackson, Senior Buyer, Trend Merchandise, Borders.

Zombie Finger Puppet Theatre
Due to our combined backgrounds in the Toy Industry, Hot Topic has come to Art + Science on a number of projects in various product categories. In early 2012, Hot Topic asked if Art + Science could come up with a unique impulse product to feature at their cash wraps that both capitalized on the zombie craze, and simultaneously utilized an online marketing campaign to drive consumers to the Hot Topic website and stores.

From this request came Zombie Finger Puppet Theatre, a cast of zombie finger puppet thespians, made to be used in videos and then posted to Facebook and YouTube. Art + Science created a contest, in which Hot Topic consumers could post their videos on Facebook and win a prize, based on the most "Likes" and "Shares".

Due to the success of the contest, Hot Topic will be looking to Art + Science for future projects. It looks like the cast of Zombie Finger Puppet Theatre will be
running an encore performance.
