“Brand Plus Brand gave me a direct roadmap from creating to selling so I’ve become intentional with the things I need to do. College never prepared me for this.
And it makes me feel so motivated. If I hadn’t taken Brand Plus Brand, I would have given up as an artist within 6 months of starting.”
"College never prepared me for this..."
Brand Plus Brand gave me the tools I needed to turn a seemingly faraway dream of getting into the licensing world into a reality. From creating a brand book to learning the most effective ways to scan and edit my artwork for pitches, I've come a tremendous way from where I was before I started this course! The handouts Jenna and Julie provide are incredibly detailed and helpful to use as a way to annotate your progress and ideas through each lesson and module. I am so excited for what's to come as I continue to apply their teachings to my business!
“I've come a tremendous way from where I was before I started this course."
“Brand Plus Brand is the roadmap you need to start selling your art. Now when someone wants to work with me, I’m ready. I have my proposal, pitch deck and pricing all in place. I’m so glad I trusted Jenna - she’s honest and transparent. She's exactly the mentor I need.”

"As an industry professional working for retailers prior to enrolling, I had previous exposure to the licensing business model and insight into artist / brand collaboration. But I was able to learn a lot from the class outside of what I knew coming in, and appreciated that the curriculum is highly relevant to the industry, and covers the crucial aspects of how to be successful in art licensing."
“Brand + Brand is a great resource for designers at every level, from beginner to established."
"It taught me that I could say 'no' to certain demands I knew were not good for me and were not aligned with my brand. I could find new clients. I was surprised by the fact that I wasn't afraid anymore by contacting other business—big or small—because I knew that I was offering something professional and consistent."
"My biggest win has been gaining consistency and more followers on my social media."
"Buying the course was a big investment for me, but I made my money back within a month. Brand Plus Brand gave me the confidence to negotiate a five-figure deal from one licensing project and, when I saw the paid invoice in my bank account, I was stunned."
Not only did Brand Plus Brand teach me another branch of the art business, but Jenna also taught me important behind-the-scenes stuff like contracts and pricing.
The templates saved me hours, if not days. It’s almost as if a virtual assistant typed it all up for me.
Before brand Plus Brand, I worked throughout the day but Jenna helped me schedule my time so I’ve got more boundaries. Now, I get to spend more time with my daughter and husband.
Before taking the course, I wanted to learn about licensing as it’s a way for me to do my own art, express myself and generate passive income.
"One of my biggest wins has been my most recent collaboration after taking the B+B course — a brand called Micro Puzzles. I now have my National Park watercolor landscapes printed on Micro Puzzles and now a big National Park merch brand called Parks Project wants to get them in their online store."
I’ve had a handful of licensing deals since taking the course! I feel confident in navigating the licensing world and now I’m just truly enjoying the process of creating and negotiating partnerships.
It’s such a great course to understand the licensing world and the handouts are amazing 🙌. I didn’t expect to identify my brand so clearly! Now I am regularly working on collections and have a clear brand identity as well as a handful of licensing deals take place.
Before B+B, I was creating custom work for friends and family but wanted to do more with my artwork.
"Do it! It's worth the money. High quality content from two very successful entrepreneurs is what you get. You can browse through the jungle of free webinars and videos — or you can speed things up by taking the course and get everything you need in order to start running (or push forward) your creative business."

"I didn’t even have a business before Brand Plus Brand but I knew I needed to invest in myself so I’d get to the next level.
There’s so many different avenues to choose but Jenna showed me the direct route to take to get my art licensed, find an agent and grow my following."
"The money was the biggest obstacle, but I decided to invest in myself and I’m so glad I did!
My biggest win has been signing with a licensing agency! I’m very excited to start making passive income off of my art and not just selling individual paintings."
"The amount of information shared exceeded my expectations. Jenna and Julie talk so openly about what they do and how to get there, it's inspiring and so helpful! I was also surprised to learn new tips and tricks in Illustrator and Photoshop. I use the Adobe Creative Suite daily in my 9-5 job, but I still learned so many new things through Jenna's teaching and process.
I am extremely thankful I took the leap and signed up for Brand + Brand. It's what finally got me over the hump of dreaming to doing."
"I think perhaps the most needed and impactful part of the course (for me) was the downloadable template for starting a branded PDF. Truly all of it is amazing and necessary and helpful, but I think since I'm such a visual person it was super helpful to compliment all of the great advice and commentary between you and Julie. It was something I could action immediately, which helped me visualize my plan and motivate me to take other necessary steps. Instant gratification, if you will."
"My biggest 'a-ha' moment from the course..."
"I feel truly aligned with this calling, and everyday my skills and business grow stronger. Because of B+B, I realized there was a need for surface design. I opened a Spoonflower shop, have ecommerce products, and now participate in Minted. I've built up my portfolio and I'm excited to start sending it to clients!"
"Since B+B I decided to rethink my design business and focus 100% on surface design—It's the best decision I made."
The information is so well presented. I will always refer to the documents that I downloaded, such as licensing, roles and responsibilities, shopping guide, and creating and organizing patterns. They will serve as my roadmap to creating patterns and getting licensed.
"The B+B resources are awesome!"
