LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--At Licensing Expo 2019, The Tangent Agency, a fast-growing brand strategy and creative agency, today announced substantial growth within its Brand Development and Consumer Products division. While Tangent has attended the Expo several times, this year’s show is the first time brands will have the opportunity to meet with the agency’s division experts and discuss omnichannel commerce.
“With advances in technology and the rise of social media, it’s never been easier for brands to develop their own direct-to-consumer channels,” said Marc Becker, Tangent CEO. “To achieve the greatest success, however, they should consider the full consumer experience and always look to elevate their brand(s) in the process. Companies and IP owners can bring us on as an extension of their team to build brands and execute revenue-generating extensions, both online and offline.”
Tangent has expanded its reach beyond movie studios, now working with toy companies such as MGA Entertainment Inc., Spin Master and Playmates. One of its most recent projects includes the global style guide including packaging, retail and promotions materials for “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” which is hitting store shelves worldwide this summer ahead of the film’s June release.
“We have the privilege to work on a variety of strong IP with enduring legacies and are diligent in making sure we stay true to the DNA of each property we collaborate on,” Becker concluded.
For MGA and its brand Little Tikes, Tangent coproduced the massive event for the brand’s 50th anniversary aptly titled “The World’s Biggest Play Date.” The event was replicated in 12 major cities around the world on Saturday, May 18. Keeping in line with the theme of “playing big,” parents were encouraged to play alongside their children on adult-sized versions of Little Tikes’ most popular products.
Experiential marketing is a fast-growing segment of the business. As the retail landscape continues to evolve, brands want to develop new and exciting ways for consumers to engage with their products and drive purchase. Tangent’s Brand Development and Consumer Products division allows brands to engage fans, reach new audiences and customers, develop new collaborations and open new revenue streams.
