international cannabis business conference

As the Creative Director for this event, projects included logo design, website design (sadly, the ICBC website is no longer under my art direction and has suffered as a result), printed program guide, signage, and social media campaigns. The ICBC is the world's biggest and most successful B2B cannabis business conference, with events in Berlin, San Francisco, Barcelona, Zurich, Portland and Vancouver, BC.

logo design for icbc

To visually represent the international vibe of this global conference, I selected reference photos of the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco, the tower of Berlin, and the white tents of Vancouver, Canada. Reducing them to their most basic shapes in Photoshop and removing their backgrounds, I then imported them into Adobe Illustrator where I converted them to vector and arranged them as shown.

rolling papers

What cannabis conference would be complete without its own line of rolling papers? I designed these in Adobe Illustrator using the template provided by the manufacturer.

evolution of a brand

As more cities were added to the ICBC tour the logo evolved to reflect the expansion of the brand. Also shown are badge designs I created for the Oregon Marijuana Business Conference (OMBC), which ran concurrently with the ICBC.
