New value-added services in Smint.io – making the live of users as easy as possible

Do you have any questions about licensing in regard to pictures or other assets you have on your system or would like to purchase? We have the right service to help. In cooperation with Deubelli, a renowned law firm for media and copyright law, Smint.io users can now request legal advice directly from within Smint.io.

Together with Die Bildbeschaffer, an independent, specialized agency for content research we offer another new service in Smint.io. If you need help finding images, videos or graphics to better showcase your brand you can get support from their experts straight from within Smint.io as well.
Is the Enterprise Art Buyer A Vanishing Breed?
For the sake of major brands, we should hope not.
In House Agencies are on the rise in major brand environment and many specialists have been replaced by multi-skilled producers taking shape as creative/integrated producers who oversee… project management, art buying, moving image, and digital production. This drive toward efficiency is, of course, understandable. But it’s vitally important that the most critical aspects of art-buying be executed with a proper eye to process and detail — particularly as it regards negotiation, rights management, and legal protections.
