Marijuana packaging design is tricky. Should you use a marijuana leaf in your logo and art work? How many million ways are there to design a leaf? Does it feel cliche to use a leaf? Our answer is yes and no. It depends on your business and target audience really. If your company prides itself in growing top shelf bud then there should probably be some plant material in your mark.
How you want your brand perceived by a consumer or patient should be conveyed subtly if not blatantly in your logo/mark and tag lines. Buyers eyes often don’t get past a poorly designed logo to find out that a product is actually one of the best in the shop.
Left brainers will look at the visual quality of your logo or package design, weigh it against their own values and tastes, then consult with the right brain, checking cannabinoid levels and ingredients, then make a decision. Right brainers will do the opposite. Geography weighs into every target market. Every segment of every market has it’s own set of values.
Even the best branding company in the world will have difficulty not alienating a few market segments. Cheech and Chong stoners chasing high THC strains look primarily at THC levels to make their decisions. An older lady treating her arthritis or cancer with cannabis instead of pharmaceuticals will likely be looking at trustworthy medical looking branding along with budtender knowledge. So many factors to consider before designing marijuana packaging.

There is so much more that goes into a successful brand than a simple logo and basic package and website. You have to picture where you want your brand to be positioned in 3 years and plan for success.
After discovery of vision and goals, we establish some points of reference, develop a mood board to narrow in on direction, then we pool our creative juices and show you multiple first drafts of your new logo and roughly how your final product could look.
This first round kicks off the creative process and acts as a compass for the rest of a project. We present as many drafts as necessary until you love your new logo.
