Jewel is proud to be included in the inaugural Brands Untapped 100 List, released by Brand Licensing Europe. The list celebrates the 100 top designers, product developers and creatives in the brand licensing industry.
From our amazing team, CEO & Founder, Julie Newman is listed as a “Design Champion” and our VP of Creative, Meredith Counts is a “Rising Star”! Julie is honored for her support of design-based brands and independent artists. One of her contributions to the art world, the Artonomo platform, was noted because of its ability to bring the artist community together through Showcase – a virtual show that was created during Covid. Meredith, who leads the Creative Services department at Jewel, has achieved great success in driving the creative direction for the New York Botanical Garden. They’ve since been nominated as a finalist for the Best Licensed Brand in their category at this year’s Licensing International Excellence Awards.
We’re also proud to announce that 2 of our artists, Kendra Dandy (Bouffants and Broken Hearts) and Jessi Raulet (EttaVee) are recognized with their success as Brand Owners! Kendra’s signature brand is a self-made success story whose collaborations include Marc Jacobs, NYX Professional Makeup, Vans, Cooneen by Design and UK Greetings to name a few. Jessi expresses positivity in her colorful work and has 60+ licensing partners including Pottery Barn Teen & Kids, American Greetings, CVS, Tervis, Erin Condren and Anthropologie.
