Functional and legal requirements are incorporated seamlessly into the design and the box is engineered to fit each cartridge securely. We used a gold metallic pantone and a soft baby pink to help Mule stand out as a high quality and subtly playful option among cannabis competitors.
Strategic and Beautiful Packaging Design
At Murmur Creative we focus on Growth-oriented packaging design. This requires a process built on brand immersion and competitor research to identify unique opportunities in the marketplace. Our solutions aren’t just stylish or safe: we’ll offer a range of concepts that push creative boundaries.
“Our brand identity was more than just a design. It captured the essence of our company, our mission, and our desire to delight customers. There is great design, excellent design, and then there is true genius design (authentic, original, unique, timeless) — Murmur delivers the latter. They’re a tried and true partner that has helped us time and time again achieve our company’s dream and objectives.”

We have had overwhelmingly positive comments on our new rebrand from both wholesalers and customers alike. Our new packaging sets us apart in a very crowded category and has cleared up confusion on the differences between our product tiers. Our rate of sales has increased significantly and our organic growth is better than ever.

Corsair Distillery has been praised in publications like Food and Wine, Saveur, Imbibe, Whisky Magazine, Whisky Advocate, and the Atlantic and it was time to put a polished and modern face on this innovative distillery. Corsair set out to be a different brand from the beginning and we set our sights on a modern and down to earth packaging line.
GladRags had 6 different box sizes and countless labels that made for a fulfillment nightmare but with a little elbow grease, we reduced these form factors to two boxes and a series of educational, product specific bands.
This is just one of the many way we’ve added value and decreased cost for our clients.
“Our new branding and packaging took our business to the next level, and everyone comments on how perfect it is! Murmur was super fun to work with, and their designers were quick to understand exactly what we needed. Choosing to work with Murmur was one of the best decisions I’ve made for GladRags and XO Flo!!”

We couldn't be more pleased with the results of our work with Murmur. They are easy to work with and extremely detail oriented. Each design meeting revealed new and exciting concepts and beautiful design examples. We look forward to working with Murmur on future projects.

“Working with Murmur has been amazing. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Murmur knows their stuff and the process was fun and exciting. Most importantly, we have amazing new branding and packaging that is making a real difference in the hearts and minds of our customers, as well as our bottom line.”

Good Foods Salad Dressing & Dips
Good Foods creates healthy, decadent dips that celebrate the goodness of real ingredients. They focus on freshness through innovative packaging technology and forgo preservatives.
Two flavors side by side that can be devoured separately or swirled together. High in protein and no artificial flavors, sweetness, or preservatives.
“The design strategy for our product needed to be spot on. We were introducing a new category to a saturated market. SOM is a mixer that can be used in both spirited and spirit-free cocktails. It was incredibly important to balance these elements and appeal to both bartenders and their patrons. The bottle needed to stand out as something unique on the crowded backbar. Murmur did research in the field, interviewed renowned mixologists, and produced packaging design and messaging that hit all the right marks.”

We designed an elegant candy box that is completely sustainable. The 3 layers: outside band that identifies candy variety and primary box are both recyclable and the inside baggie is a biodegradable way to keep the tangy sweet kombucha candy fresh.
Everything is recyclable – from the glass cup to the aluminum lid. The sake cups have a weather motif that links Afuri’s U.S. and Japanese locations with their surrounding mountains.
Minto Island Tea Company
In designing packaging for Minto, we wanted to create a container that had the high-end feeling of a stand up box but that had less environmental impact and was more cost effective. The double width folded box achieves the structure and weight of a more expensive box and supports Minto’s premium branding. The custom labels functionally seal the box while also providing color differentiation for each tea variety.
Great packaging starts with a solid brand. We love working with brands from the ground up on a full spectrum of brand collateral.
A brand rich with a strategic foundation is set up for success. Regardless of whether you’re a well established existing brand or ready to make your vision a reality, we pride ourselves in strategic workshops that will help you hone or develop your mission, vision, and brand voice.
Packaging development can involve in-store research, interviews with relevant personas, available data analysis, and third-party consumer research testing groups.
Format Design & Prototyping
Perhaps you have a vision for something more unique than a stock packaging format, or your product itself is unique enough to merit a format that doesn’t yet exist. We’re equally adept at both.
Institutions such as the FDA and liquor licensing boards have complex sets of regulations. We’ll work closely with you to ensure your packaging is above board.
In-Store Marketing & Retail Experiences
Take your product to market with a roll out plan and marketing materials that engage your waiting audience. First impressions matter both on screen and in-store.
