Designing a modern cannabis brand.


Now that cannabis is legal in more than half the U.S. and Canada, a crowded and competitive marketplace has emerged, with everyone from former basement growers to Wall Street investors looking to own the industry. That’s led to a surge of new cannabis cultivators and retailers struggling to differentiate their brands, which is critical if they’re going to build and sustain profitable businesses beyond the initial “green rush” – especially as prices drop and consumers have more options.


Our goal was to avoid obvious cannabis cliches and create a more refined brand look that is light, fun and visually appealing. To further differentiate from growing competition in the industry, the design intentionally skews feminine to appeal to a less marketed to cannabis audience.
