Tastebuds is a meal kit which cooks with cannabis. It consisted of all the necessary food ingredients, recipe book, a stash box containing all the required forms of cannabis, and a website where the user can educate themselves on the cannabis plant.

The goal was to elevate marijuana’s stereotypical reputation and educate users on the plant. The color choice is restricted but vibrant, capturing the energy surrounding the topic. The pattern work is a lively typographic pattern paired with a subtle geometric pattern inspired by the two main chemical compounds found in cannabis. The label system was developed to catch attention while displaying a lot of information. Many elements, covering a large amount of information, contribute to a revitalized and rapidly expanding industry.
