Building a Brand from Square One
Fetch was lucky enough to be involved with Cannuka from the very beginning. The opportunity to work in the emerging market of Cannabis and legalized CBD was exciting, and challenging. One early hurdle we faced was to separate our brand from the multitude of "marijuana" inspired brands coming to market. This was something we always stressed - first and foremost, we are a "CBD product, not a marijuana product". As important as that core brand value is, we also knew the importance of Cannuka using Manuka Honey as a differentiating ingredient. We leaned heavily on the "bee and honeycomb" for icons and as a visual brand elements. We feel we our attention to public awareness and an individual's comfort with CBD is what separated Cannuka's brand and product line from the competition. By educating the public and being sympathetic to a customer's hesitations, we avoided the trend taken by so many of our competitors to simply add CBD to a product and hope that would differentiate it in the market.
Incorporating Brand Through Innovative
Packaging for many brands is its most important asset. With Cannuka we wanted to set the right tone – Cannuka is a luxury product, made with quality ingredients, and then carefully crafted with attention to detail and our customers' high values in mind.
Communicating our core brand value was of paramount importance, placing our brand in the market where we wanted it to be. We feel that Cannuka not only accomplished this with our beautiful award-winning designs, but these choices were a significant and deliberate choice differentiating us from our competition and attracting loyal customers in an already crowded retail environment.
Building a Brand – Start-Up to Success
Starting in 2013 – as just an "idea to bring cannabis to the masses," Cannuka partnered with Fetch to act as it's a creative partner.
We jumped at the opportunity to work with a start-up. The success of Cannuka has been a testament to understanding the marketplace and leveraging a brand's image to maximize its business's potential.
