rockd3 got their new product packaging by running a design contest:
Help this small marijuana farm make it to the top!!!
Check out rockd3's Product packaging contest…
Lilac City Gardens
Description of the product
We are an established recreational marijuana farm in the state of Washington. The name of this particular product will be called "Sour Berry", which is one of several strains we sell. In the past, weve had a different color in our logo for each strain. we have about 10 total. Id like a design template that has a consistent look across all the products, that has a specific color that is recognizable for the particular strain we are selling. We will be using our original logo (REVISION!). The fonts can be changed as well to fit your design.
Description of the product target audience
the state voted over 50% to legalize cannabis, so it has to appeal to a wide variety of people.
For the jar stickers, the center rectangle, is the focal point of the product. the two other sides wrap around the square jar. the jar must contain the following information: we are required to have this entire warning on our packaging, can be small and out of the way - This product may be unlawful outside of Washington state. This product has intoxicating effects and may be habit forming. A strain description: Sour Berry, exclusive to Lilac City Gardens smells and tastes just like the name. This cross of Sour Diesel and Blueberry will leave you in a euphoric state of relaxation. must be labeled indica or sativa - in this case for sour berry its an indica design must have small icons for facebook and instagram and youtube we are required to have a 2" x 1" rectangle barcode that goes onto our packaging. it would be nice if this was thought out in the design, a specific spot for it on one of the sides of the jar. the weight of the product needs to be on the sticker. see templates I need design templates that i can change the color and strains on myself as we get new ones. i would like a swatch of 10 colors that would all look good next to each other on the shelf. We are going to use our original logo in the design (REVISION!!!) website info as far as design goes in general, the most successful brands seem to have a general pattern that all strain colors will look good against. a recycled craft color for the base maybe? Or maybe a black and white intricate background? you're the artist... ive provided photos of sucessful cannabis companies as reference and ideas. Id like something unique that is different. no one has done slightly flourescent colors or glow in the dark or anything. i just want to think outside the box. what if there was a cutout where you could peek in an read a possitive message? just throwing out ideas and willing to take any creative suggestions from a community of artists. maybe there are voids in the sticker with diecut patterns cut out, or the shape of the sticker is unique and provides better product viewing? This could really make the product pop! The preroll sticker ideally needs to be designed so that it is clear and you can see into the tube.
What to avoid
just to let everyone know, I initially thought it would be neat to see the logo refreshed some. we have decided to keep our original logo! less work - I apologize for the people that put time into being creative with it. I have also guaranteed the design payment and extended the first round 3 days!
I've provided hand drawn templates
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their product packaging.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
rockd3 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
