Grass Fed Studio Announces Relaunch as Illinois Continues to Hit Record-Breaking Marijuana Sales 

CHICAGO, September 1, 2021 — Today Grass Fed Studio Founder and Creative Director Nate Azark announced the company’s relaunch, whose home market – Illinois – is on track to see more than $1 billion in adult-use marijuana sales this year. With over 20 years of experience, Azark started Grass Fed, a full-service creative studio based in Chicago, in 2017 to cultivate impactful identities for cannabis startups. 

“As the cannabis industry continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, we chose to refresh our look and feel, as well as hyperfocus our efforts on strategy, branding, packaging, and illustration. Our team stands out among other agencies as we deeply understand the cannabis space from both a B2B and B2C perspective. In addition to our extensive cannabis industry knowledge, we bring decades of experience building strong brands. Our goal is to help our clients inform and educate their consumers about the benefits of cannabis through beautiful design,” said Azark. 

It’s essential that new and existing cannabis businesses – everyone from cultivators and dispensaries to ancillary services – differentiate themselves through an authentic brand story and striking visual identity. Both are vital to succeeding in an incredibly competitive industry. They are also in need of partners with vast experience in the space because the industry is full of unknowns and there is a massive need for cannabis education. 

Grass Fed Studio’s clients include an established Illinois dispensary retail chain, one of the industry’s leading cannabis cultivation and management software companies, and a team of cannabis growers and educators, who were just awarded a Craft Grow license. 

“Our approach is relationship-driven, and we take great pride in the clients we choose to work with. We believe the cannabis industry’s growth is vital to improving people’s lives and value working with those who feel the same way,” said Azark.
