Santoro's Licensing division has its origins in the now iconic Bang on the Door brand. Taking inspiration from a handful of child-like sketches, Santoro Licensing transformed these artworks into an international sensation. Bang on the Door went on to sweep the industry awards scene, most notably winning the 2000 LIDA Brand of the Year award, having generated in excess of $800 million at retail.
With the enormous success of Bang of the Door, this brand paved the way for a new star and the era of Gorjuss. Launching in 2010, this stunning collection captivated the hearts and imaginations of the public. These incredibly detailed artworks hold a wide portfolio of licensees, are sold in over 93 countries, and in 2017 alone, sold approximately 48 million products.
