Student: Sensi Sweets Edible Cannabis
For this special Sunday edition of The Dieline we are featuring student concepts from Cornish College of the Arts. Students designed physical packages, but they also came up with brand new product ideas for an actual client, Sensi Sweets. Wanting to prove that cannabis edibles can look great these renditions bring to life the "cannabis culture."
"Cornish College of the Arts gets creative with Sensi Sweets, an edible cannabis company from Seattle, Washington.
With recent marijuana legalization in Washington state, new packaging opportunities have opened up for designers. A few weeks ago I assigned my design class at Cornish College of the Arts the task of rebranding a real company in need of an identity and packaging make-over. While much of the cannabis-based designs currently on the market are regrettable, the situation presents a great opportunity for designers to define an emerging market.
Not only did students design physical packages, but they also came up with brand new product ideas such as THC filled "Cake Pops" and "Sensi Suckers". The client, Sensi Sweets, was involved in critiques and design development throughout the process. At the end of six weeks, he picked his top 10, ultimately hiring Katie McGuire. You can see a preview of her work and others below.
This is proof that cannabis edibles can look great too. And if you happen to be in the Seattle area on Monday, April 28th, please stop by Cornish College of the Arts at 1000 Lenora St. between 11am and 2pm to see the Product and Packaging Final Show."
