terp's candy


Revolutionary but largely unknown to consumers, chemical compounds known as terpenes possess enormous medicinal potential. For Terp's Candy, I was asked to develop brand strategy, identity and packaging that would appeal to fans first of homeopathic medicine and later, cannabis aficionados.


Visual cues are this brand's best strategy for combating the multiple obstacles to making its way into consumers' hearts. Common visual approaches to medicinal packaging illuminate the candies' medicinal effects, and irreverent and playful graphics, fonts and colors speak to the candy crowd.

  • "I cannot imagine where our company and brand would be without Samantha. We created this innovative product and were unsure how to present it to the world; she guided us through creating the package design, how to think about our brand and keep our message on point. From the beginning her thought provoking questions fueled conversations which refined our vision and goals. She even went out of her way to find us helpful contacts in our field. Terp's Candy packaging gets compliments from everyone, before someone opens a bag to try a Terp they must be drawn to it. With her designs, she went far beyond our expectation."
    Jeremy Olson, President of Terp's Candies
