“As a licensing coach and teacher, I established ALLA in 2013 to launch the careers of emerging artists. This new group of talented artists, with a stunning range of collections and product designs, will appeal to manufacturers across every category,” said ALLA’s founder Debra Velencia.
ALLA specializes in artists based in the cultural melting pot of Southern California. Inspired by the Californian lifestyle—progressive, modern, colorful, confident, bold—their designs translate across all markets and regions. They are especially passionate about creating a wide variety of fine art, illustrations, graphic and surface designs suitable for licensing to manufacturers in the stationery, gift, textile, home décor, and craft industries.
More than an art resource, individual ALLA artists are partners with each manufacturer for success: building brands, designing innovative product lines, and growing sales. Their vast combined experience includes art direction, package design, branding, marketing, merchandising, production, research and development. Furthermore, the members are all design professionals and knowledgeable in manufacturing techniques and digital artwork file preparation.
With a combined library of over 2000 images, ALLA effectively applies talents to give each client an edge within the different markets. They currently offer popular licensing themes including florals, coastal, nature/wildlife, food/beverage, home/garden, baby/child, holiday, travel, pet, novelty, inspiration, humor, shibori, and more. They can develop custom themed collections upon request to meet the demands of current trends. Additionally, they understand consumer trends and provide strategic direction for product line development to manufacturers.
