Project Description

Sula is a radically new form of breathable cannabis that offers a better and safer way to experience cannabis. Developed by Dispersa Labs, Sula delivers a precise dosage with each breath, dispensed from a capsule-based device that is smoke-free, fast-acting, discreet and comfortable to use.

Pentagram developed the brand identity framework for Sula encompassing everything from naming, brand positioning and messaging, to packaging design, brand collateral and digital design, to art direction of product photography and illustration. Sula comes packaged in a child-proof pouch that includes the inhalation device, a packet of 10 doses and an illustrated instructional guide. The radiant color palette, inspired by the “aura” seen while using cannabis, features blends of warm orange and yellow, or cool blues and purples. The guide plays off the simplicity of a how-to manual, with custom icons by Pentagram and illustrations by Manshen Lo.
