TU – Notes of Creativity & Friendliness

Twirling Umbrellas has always sought to be the friendliest group of humans in the digital world. We take great pride in our work and love collaborating with like-minded companies. With these values at the core of our business, we’ve had the opportunity to explore many industries and collaborate with a wide range of companies. Along the way, we’ve become even more passionate about exploring new opportunities and venturing into the unknown. 

With this in mind, it’s easy to see how eager we were to jump into a new industry on October 17, 2018. With the federal legalization of cannabis finally coming to Canada, we recognized a great need for elevated marketing and advertising campaigns in what was inevitably going to become a hyper-competitive space.

The three years since then have been equal parts exciting, tumultuous, and rewarding. 

Along the way, we’ve seen staggering development and had the opportunity to work with some of the top cannabis companies in Canada. One such company is BOLD Growth Inc. 

Bold Growth – Notes of Premium Craft & Weirdness

Based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, BOLD Growth specializes in growing supremely awesome craft cannabis. Producing highly potent and high-quality strains since 2018, they’ve established themselves as a premium producer in this highly competitive industry. Even so, they recognized there was untapped potential in their brand. That’s where we came in. 

Starting in early 2020, we collaborated with BOLD Growth to develop a brand identity and strategy that would bring the bold ideas behind the brand to life. In addition, we spearheaded a social media campaign for them that promotes their great weed and encapsulates all the weird and wonderful aspects of BOLD.

Featuring a wide array of content, we wanted BOLD’s social channels to reflect what we saw consumers loving about the brand. With that in mind, we developed an out-of-the-box strategy centred around strong imagery, amazing products, and moments that will make you stop and think, “WTF?” 

And our shared vision paid off.
