Turning May Flowers into Summer Sun ☀️

To kick off the month of June, we are excited to recap all the creative content we made and shared throughout the month of May in this issue of our newsletter. As always, we would like to thank our clients and business partners for their endless support and flexibility.


News Flash ⚡️

In case you missed it on our socials, we are beyond excited to officially announce our partnership with Quidd, the leading digital collectible marketplace.

Bare Tree Media is working with Quidd to launch digital collectibles to fans. Upcoming collaborations will feature a variety of popular licensed brands. Previously, Bare Tree Media and Quidd partnered to release Smurfs-themed content and within the first two hours of launching, the series sold out and sales exceeded $100,000. More details announced at: https://bit.ly/quiddpartnership





“Given the monumental success [of our first launch on Quidd], we are scheduling monthly product releases through year-end on the Quidd platform and invite brands to join us…by working with Bare Tree Media, brands can offer non-NFT digital collectibles to fans to be bought on the primary market and sold on the secondary market within Quidd…”

Robert Ferrari, president of Bare Tree Media




Our design team has been busy designing Twitter Branded Likes and Hashtags for our partners! Check out some of the work that was created and released this month.


What better way to celebrate Harry Styles’ new album #HarrysHouse than with this
Twitter Branded Like. It was truly amazing to witness how many Twitter users engaged with
our branded like on the day of the album’s release.




Marvel’s “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”:

Are you a Marvel fan? Yes. Then, get ready to experience the madness of the multiverse.
Our team got the incredible opportunity to design a Twitter Branded Like for the premiere of the new
Marvel Studios movie “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which was released in theaters on May 6th.



National Pet Month 🐶 :

Just because Earth Day is in April does not mean we can’t celebrate our planet and the beautiful things it contains all year round. May is National Pet Month, and Bare Tree Media wanted to take the time to encourage our audience to support pets of all kinds.

ARL’s Pet Prom:

In keeping with our mission of supporting animal welfare, we partnered with the Animal
Rescue League of Boston and designed custom GIFS to promote their “Pet Prom.”
The ARL Pet Prom highlights animals looking for their own fairytale happy endings.
In addition, our AR team designed an Instagram Camera effect for the event that you
can use on your own adopted pet.

Congratulations to the winners, Zilla and Fern, and be sure to check out these GIFs on the ARL’s official GIPHY page.



World Turtle Day 🐢:

We don’t just love our furry friends! One of our AR designers, Wayne, created a Snapchat lens to “shellebrate” World Turtle Day on May 23rd. Embedded in this lens is a link to donate to the Florida Aquarium, which looks to provide protection for everyone’s favorite on-land and under the sea creatures.

According to their website, the Las Vegas Licensing Expo “has connected the world’s most influential…brand owners and agents with consumer goods manufacturers, licensees, and retailers.” Thousands of licensing industry professionals flew to Las Vegas May 23rd-26th to build partnerships, plan channel releases, and expose themselves to some of the newest brands available to the licensing world—and the BTM team was no exception!

Our studio representatives had the opportunity to meet with our valued licensors and discuss brand and product strategies for 2022 and 2023. We held 50+ meetings over three days with companies, including but not limited to, Sanrio (Hello Kitty), Mr. Men Little Miss, Hasbro, Care Bears, the Smurfs, and Pokemon.

“For me, this was the first meeting with a lot of our licensing partners in person due to COVID. I had the opportunity to network and gained more insight into the future of licensing in general. I was invited to a ‘Women in Toys’ breakfast and attended a character parade, featuring famous characters from Teletubbies, Squishmallows, etc. Overall, this experience was great and informative, despite it being at a limited capacity. The free swag was great too!”

Josie Martin, licensing coordinator at Bare Tree Media


Our AR team collaborated with the Smurfs to unveil a Snapchat Lens featured at the Licensing Expo. This hyper-casual gamified lens uses real-time 3D simulations and collision detection to bring users a fun, user-friendly AR experience. This lens also contains a custom link to a Smurfs sticker pack, available for iMessage, that has previously been promoted on our socials. Brands went crazy over the demo and requested our team to create AR experiences for them. Scan the snapcode or click here to try it out.

Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May was Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. We look to celebrate the illustrious and impactful contributions of more than 45 countries and 3 territories all across Asia, including Eastern Asia, Southeastern Asia, Southern Asia, Central Asia, and Western Asia (ref: asia society.org). The AAPI community has faced much adversity throughout history and continues to face adversity today.

We are proud to showcase an illustration by our Art Manager, Elisa Lau, created for LaGuardia Marine Air Terminal’s first AAPIHM Exhibit back in 2021 and chosen this year (2022) as the lead feature in the Social Justice category of Bloomfield College’s annual Literary Magazine. Lau’s piece highlights the importance of allyship in a world deeply divided.
