About

What is Entertainment Design?
We are like movie producers for entertainment and events.

A lot of what we do is partnering with event planners to pull off extraordinary events.

A great movie producer is able to take an idea and make it come alive and see it through till it's streaming on Netflix.

Likewise, we don't just plan events. We take ideas and turn them into experiences.

A movie producer doesn't just hire actors, they work with them to orchestrate a story.

So what's this mean for you?

It means you aren't just hiring wedding entertainment, rather we work with you to make sure every moment of your special evening hits the right emotions at the right time.

Whatever your event, we work with you to design an evening full of surprises that leaves your guests talking for years to come.

A

successful event that pulls off the extraordinary takes a good mix of creativity, problem solving, technical ability, strategic planning, and knowing the right people.  

We love getting creative with:
  • Weddings
  • Corporate Events
  • Celebrations & Galas
  • Concerts & Festivals
  • Theme & Specialty Entertainment
  • Virtual Meetings & Events
  • Anything else you can imagine

If you have an idea, we'd love to hear it!

In California, the law requires that “any person or entity involved in arranging employment for an artist in the entertainment field must get a license to operate as a talent agency.”

Talent agency licenses must be renewed every year and require that the agency meets stringent requirements to protect consumers, including:
- Surety Bond of $50,000
- State approved contracts
- State approved fee schedule
- Affidavits of Character
- Certificate of Liability Insurance
- Premises Certification
- Fingerprinting / Live Scan
- Trust account for deposits

Hip Entertainment has maintained our Talent Agency License since 2007. We are A+ rated and members of the Better Business Bureau.

Let us help you!

Avoid stress filled evenings and paying too much for subpar talent.
