Good Supply Branding (Project)

Jacknife was tasked with creating a recreational cannabis brand for a well-informed, enthusiast audience.

RIFF Branding (Project)

Jacknife was challenged with developing a recreational cannabis brand for a younger, more urban, and highly creative demographic—who is also highly resistant to traditional marketing and has a great BS radar.

Humber Students’ Federation, a student-led organization operating in the sphere of student life at Humber College and sister university Guelph-Humber, came to Jacknife with a mission for a complete rebrand. Despite high favourability and job approval ratings from the student body, the HSF brand suffered from an institutional visual identity and name that, in the…

Aphria Medical Branding (Project)

In the process of working on several recreational brands for Aphria—a Canadian Licensed Cannabis Producer—we were tasked with helping re-focus and re-brand their Medical business as well. Our task was to give the Aphria Medical brand a more sophisticated, trustworthy appearance and brand positioning. We got to work by aligning on a strategy that makes…
