Illustrations by Rocket68, a producer of illustrated paper products represented by art licensing and design company, The London Studio, have been licensed for a range of 2025 calendars and diaries by Portico Designs, an independent publisher of gifts, calendars and greeting cards.

“Rocket68 is widely admired for a portfolio that combines an exciting color palette and the zest of contemporary design, as this wholly original take on aspects of London proves,” says Charlie Czul, sales director, Portico Designs. “The London Calling range is striking and inspirational – perfect for what we are sure will be a very popular range of calendars and diaries.”

The Portico range is to be based on London Calling, Rocket68’s illustrated collection of London-themed prints and cards that aim to portray London’s architecture, areas, life and communities. The deal was brokered on behalf of The London Studio by independent licensing sales consultant, Kirsty Guthrie, of KJG.

“We’re delighted to see Jill White’s exquisite work recognized by a major name in calendar and diary publishing,” says Soula Zavacopoulos, founder, director, The London Studio. “London Calling is a fabulous collection and one that very much merits its own calendars and diaries from one of the U.K.’s finest independent publishers. I expect that many of the retailers and galleries who already stock Rocket68’s successful cards and prints will be thrilled that they’ll soon be able to expand their in-store displays to include this exquisite social stationery next year.”

The London Calling range of calendars and diaries published by Portico Designs will be available in September 2024 with a wide-ranging distribution, including bookshops, supermarkets, gift shops and online.

“Portico Designs has a strong reputation for diverse partnerships and high-quality illustration – and we are thrilled that it has now included Rocket68 among a very strong portfolio of partners,” says Kirsty Guthrie, independent licensing sales consultant, KJG. “The popularity of London Calling has already exceeded our expectations – and this agreement is a wonderful addition to that success.”
