Turner Licensing partners with illustrator Jason Naylor
Turner Licensing is excited and proud to announce a partnership with widely popular street and graffiti artist Jason Naylor with the release of new 2022 dated products featuring his work. Naylor is an award-winning artist, designer and creative director who has been working in New York City for over 15 years with a mission to spread color and positivity across the globe.
He breathes life into every project with an optimistic attitude, humility and confidence, as he believes that kindness is the key to success. His bright, electric designs and positive words reflect his zeal for life, his quest for joy and his love of LOVE.
Turner Licensing, a brand under the LANG Companies, Inc., is launching two dated collections for 2022 featuring Naylor’s work: “Pride” and “Love Explosion.” Each collection includes a Wall Calendar and coordinating 17-Month Planner (August 2021 – December 2022).
“My mission is to spread love and positivity to as many people as possible,” Naylor said. “Partnering with Turner to create new calendars and planners with my signature style will now help me do that every day of the year.”
Turner Licensing’s partnership with Naylor answers a growing consumer interest in showcasing their support for political and social justice topics, such as LGBTQ+ rights, as well as expressing their individuality through fresh, bold designs. Customers for Turner Licensing’s “Pride” and “Love Explosion” Naylor products range widely across genders and age groups, making it a natural addition to dated, stationery and gifting product categories. Naylor is represented by bCreative to license his artwork for Turner Licensing’s products.
“Our relationship with Jason, just like Jason himself, has been incredibly positive. We’re so excited to bring something to consumers that merges his amazing artwork with the high-quality product people have come to expect from us,” said Michelle Rand, Sr. Brand Manager for Turner Licensing.
Naylor’s work has received global recognition, including the Golden Novum Design Award and two CLIO Bronze medals, and he has been featured on HGTV and the Discovery Channel. In 2020, he won two Finalist honors from the Bowery Awards, one with Maybelline and one with Sour Patch Kids. In 2018, Bumble named him one of the 100 most inspiring New Yorkers, and his upbeat, colorful creations have found partnerships with a range of brands, such as Coach, Pepsi, Guess, Xbox and Maybelline.
