Not only aesthetic and concept communication that we focused on,but also solving the pain-point issues faced by the users and customers when ordering Cannabis products.

The container is designed to firmly contain and protect the Cannabis buds and showcases the vision of the brand. It is composed of 2 layers of plastics, the lining inside is made out of PET Plastic for food safety reason, and PP Plastic for the outer layer. The outer layer showcases the design concept of “The Inspiring Change” by showcasing the name of the songs that have made impacts and changes society, the typography approach are also the reinterpretation of the cloud that signify creativity, and symbolizing the culture and process of Cannabis inhaling that ignites creativity. The bottom of the container has the sticker that informs all the basic in formations of product; species, warnings, weight to our users to properly enjoy our product and be informed.
The carrier bag/box is designed as a solution for protection during transportation and to protect the privacy of user. The bag template is the reinvention of the typical shopping bag that we adapted to make the special mechanic that the top of the bag can be folded and perfectly snaps with the hole on the left and right side of the bag, and transforms into a completely sea land conceal the contents inside. The shopping bag also houses the trays that can firmly hold the container by just a simply pushing the container down the marking line on the tray to lock the container in place.
