The most effective design is not a pretty picture, but a memorable tag line and image that stops them in their tracks. Got Milk?

Tool Studios has ventured into all things cannabis. We were fascinated by the passing of amendment 64. We knew the ride was going to be one of great intrigue for industries that could contribute to the development of a mainstream cannabis industry.
We have educated ourselves through our work with industry consultants, growers, dispensary owners, investors and employee’s. We sat quietly and observed before we began to set our own standards for how and with whom we would work within this industry. We knew the market would be saturated quickly with the green rush, a paradigm we had first hand experience with inside the snowboard industry. Like the snowboard industry, the early years where flooded with the “get rich quick” mentality with many fly by night brands and service providers popping up all over. As we learned then, it was smarter aligning ourselves with those who had a clear vision for longterm success.
It is sometimes better to sit back and observe rather than throwing yourself in the middle of the chaos. There are at times intellectual properties overlooked when distracted by sheer competition. Tool has created a solution for the cannabis industry that is smart, research based and foundation building. We have the knowledge and the know how to create an intelligent and beautiful brand for success and longevity.
