New York Fashion Week Checked Off the Brand Joint Bucket List

It was an exciting weekend in New York City for the Brand Joint team! In case you missed it, Brand Joint and I+I Botanicals, our line of CBD-infused skincare products, sponsored an historic runway collaboration for New York Fashion Week. Women Grow teamed up with Project Runway star, Korto Momolu to create "High Fashion Meets the World of Cannabis," a collection of largely hemp-based designs incorporating aspects of health and wellness. The event was created for women, by women to showcase the immense talent and creativity women bring to both the cannabis and fashion industries.

Korto's stunning collection included 26 unique looks incorporating hemp, jute, linen, cork, and other sustainable fabrics, as well as custom-made cannabis-themed jewelry and accessories from Metal & Canvas and Genifer M Jewelry. Models of all shapes, sizes, races, and ethnicities walked the runway, some using custom-designed TribeTokes pens to change the perception of cannabis consumption.

The show's VIP gift bags included I+I Botanical's pocket-sized CBD-infused Dry Body Oil, and before the show, I+I products were seen backstage. Models prepped with I+I's rejuvenating, anti-aging face serum and the moisturizing dry body oil to get runway ready. You can learn more about I+I products here!

At the after party held at Chelsea Music Hall, attendees danced the night away and stopped to snap photos with the inspiring women behind the event, Korto Momolu and Dr. Chanda Macias, CEO and Chairwoman of the Board for Women Grow. After weeks of hard work, Brand Joint and I+I teams had a blast celebrating a successful event and we are proud to have developed the brand strategy and design for this amazing collaboration. Congratulations to Women Grow and Korto Momolu on making herstory!

2017: A Year in Review

As we enter the new year, our team took a moment to reflect on the variety of work we’ve completed for our amazing clients in 2017. Last year has been our most productive and exciting one yet. Along with developing brand strategy and designing websites and packaging, we completed several logo projects for our dispensary and processor clients. Below you’ll find a few of our favorite cannabis branding projects of 2017. We're excited to see what 2018 has in store!

Charm City Medicus

Charm City Medicus is a Baltimore-area dispensary opening in a few weeks. Throughout the last several months, our team has helped develop social media strategy and promotional material leading up to their opening date. As they await their Grand Opening, their Facebook page has over 1,000 engaged followers, more than any other dispensary in the state.

 

Education is a huge marketing tool that has been an asset in the pre-opening success of CCM. This past November we helped coordinate an educational Veteran's Day event to inform their patients and the surrounding community about the medical benefits of cannabis. The "Healing Our Heroes" event was a huge success! Several industry professionals and experts weighed in on a panel and discussed how cannabis is grown and processed, and described how different strain types can help treat various ailments.

National Holistic Healing Center

National Holistic has been a beloved client since Brand Joint's beginning. Located in Washington, D.C., this medical cannabis dispensary was the last to open, but currently has the largest patient base in the city. In the last two years, we have helped update and elevate their branding and marketing materials, interior space and most recently, their website to match the team's warm and inviting personalities. Referencing their motto, "treat yourself with nature," the website design depicts elements of nature, providing a soothing experience for patients.

Crab Cakes & Cannabis — That's What Maryland Does!

This year, Brand Joint launched our first lifestyle brand. As Maryland is our home state, our first apparel line was specifically designed for cannabis enthusiasts and lovers of all things Maryland!

Products include sweatshirts, t-shirts, zip-ups, beanies, baseball hats, patches and stickers. These products are sold exclusively in Maryland dispensaries across the state. Check us out on Instagram and visit our website for wholesaler info!

Prime Extracts 

Prime Extracts distills the cannabis plants down to its prime component in order to make the finest quality cannabis oils and concentrates. Using prime numbers and shapes, we designed a bold, minimalist logo that references the concentrates Prime produces. The animation of the geometric shapes creates an interesting design element featured on their website. Most recently, we designed the packaging for Prime products that will be unveiled in Maryland dispensaries this year.

Cannavations

Cannavations is a boutique medical cannabis dispensary located in Cockeysville, Maryland. We designed their logo and website to reflect the clean, light and airy atmosphere of the dispensary itself.

The raised “v” over the green cross symbol for medical cannabis symbolizes the elevating and positive, healing effects of the high-quality medicine Cannavations provides at the dispensary. The animation creates an interesting and engaging element that can be used on the website and digital platforms.
