PORTFOLIO

DIEM DUST HALF-MELT SIFT & BUBBLE HASH

GRAPHIC DESIGN, PACKAGING DESIGN, COPYWRITING

After one particularly bountiful harvest at Diem Farms in Independence, Oregon, it became clear that we needed to sell the beautiful byproduct of all the flower, all on its own. My angle on this card was to evoke the homegrown, do-it-yourself ethos of the Oregon cannabis market's aesthetic with the elemental linework that is a core part of the Diem brand, as seen on hellodiem.com. I worked closely with a packaging specialist at the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) to ensure that its verbiage, proportions, and layout were all OLCC-compliant. This includes a label on the vial lid, the side of the vial, the front card label, and the card's back label. I also wrote the product description copy that exists on the product pages for each, so if you are 21+ in Portland, OR, check out the half-melt sift hash and half-melt bubble hash from Diem!
