Hectare’s

Hectare’s was originally the name of a beverage concept for “sweetwater” tea made from the discarded skins of coffee cherries. However, with the CBD industry booming, and the main ingredient shifting from coffee cherries to Kentucky grown hemp, it was clear the project would need to evolve. Hectare’s CBD Innovations now creates small-batch, artisan wellness products for health-minded individuals.

THE CHALLENGE

Standing out in a saturated market

Years before this project, Fieldtrip worked with the founders of Hectare’s to develop the brand and packaging for their sweetwater tea concept. While the founders believed in the name and brand, the product would eventually evolve. Hectare’s new products were a collection of CBD wellness shots – “Tune Up” formulas to boost energy naturally and “Tone Down” for a deeper, more restorative sleep. CBD products started flooding the shelves creating a sea of similar-looking products with outdated brands. The opportunity was ripe for Hectare’s to approach the saturated market from a fresh perspective.

THE APPROACH

Refreshingly simple design

By working with the founders through guided brand exercises, the beloved Hectare’s brand was redefined to better reflect the new product offerings and a clean, natural approach the company was taking to production. We designed a packaging series that is as innovative and pure as its contents, communicating both the benefits of the product and the blissful feelings derived from it.

In an environment filled with busy, often aggressive design, we sought to create a brand that cuts through the noise with a clean, refreshing look, utilizing a wealth of white space paired with vibrant colors and photography. A simple “H” mark with flipped arrows for their “Tune Up” and “Tone Down” variations supports a more playful wordmark.

THE RESULTS

Fully funded and ready to sell

The beloved Hectare’s brand was ready for investor audiences. The capital was raised even quicker than projected thanks to the strength of the brand and the product mock-ups. With financial backing, the Hectare’s wellness shots were no longer a concept but a reality. The clean, bright, bold and premium package design stands out on the shelf and online.
