COOKIES N’ CREAM • 3.5G

“This strain is known for its sweet taste, just like the ice cream flavor. The cookies and cream ice cream flavor is so iconic and classic, I wanted to acknowledge it in my design. For this label,
I created an illustration that mimicked the look of scoops being taken from a fresh carton of ice cream. Back in high school, I used to work at an ice cream shop, so this design is dedicated to all of the scoops of cookies and cream I’ve ever served.”

NUKE EM • 3.5G

“When designing the label for this strain, I found inspiration in the juxtaposition of disruption and calmness that’s associated with white noise. I thought back to when I was a kid and would experience television static when the signal went out, or when flipping through radio stations and would hear white noise when the signal wasn’t clear. As much as white noise and static can be considered a disruption, it can also be seen as a focus tool or calming mechanism, the latter of which I found fitting since this strain is known for its soothing and anxiety-relieving effects.”

BON APPETIT • 3.5G

“This strain smells just like its namesake and has a relaxing and mood-lifting effect to those who use it. Inspired by the sweet and lively dessert Pineapple Upside Down cake, this design incorporates a bright color palette inspired by the dessert. I used contrasting colors and created an abstracted pineapple pattern in order to create a lively and eye-catching label for the strain.”

ACID DOUGH • 3.5G

“The Acid Dough flower is appropriately named for its bright foliage and colorful effects. This sativa dominant strain evokes brilliant sensations of a light and relaxed high. With a sweet candy taste and unexpected sour kick, Acid Dough takes you through a flow of flavor and uplifting emotions. As this is my final design in Mayflower’s Artist Spotlight Series, I chose to incorporate the same colors, shapes, and techniques from my previous label designs for White Knuckles and Star Killer. The Acid Dough label’s luminous colors and patterns orbit around and beyond the canvas, harmonizing these three strains in one design. This gallery of triptych cannabis labels showcases the range of emotion, physical effects, and neurological sensations that have the incredible ability to present differently in all individuals.

FRUIT JUICE• 3.5G

This Indica dominant strain, Star Killer, gives the unique scent of lemon and mix of pine for an earthy taste. Star Killer is known to strongly relax the body allowing you to take a deep rest, aiding in the treatment of pain, such as; aches and inflammation. Because of the strain’s uplifting effects and
distinctive lemon flavor, the Star Killer design highlights both these characteristics. With bright hues of yellow, pink, and purple, the design is curated only of rounded shapes to mimic the euphoric and mellowing effects of the flower. Similar to the shape of a lemon wedge, these shapes ebb and flow into one full, bright yellow, circle at its focal point – maybe even a star."

SLEEPING AWAKE • 3.5G
LIMITED EDITION

“White Knuckles is an Indica strain known for its calming and sedative effects. These effects can relieve issues such as anxiety and insomnia. As someone who has a close relationship with insomnia, I often see pulsing, squiggly shapes like these in the mornings I wake from - finally - a good night’s sleep. Similar to the strain name “white knuckles” these stringy, rippled, shapes make out the familiar crinkles on the knuckles of a finger"

GHOST TRAIN HAZE • 3.5G
LIMITED EDITION

“For the Ghost Train Haze artwork, I wanted to catch
the energetic effect of the strain. I went with a train
station scene to remind the viewer of early morning commutes, when the day is just starting and full of
potential. The bold and bright color palette was chosen to compliment this sense of potential and to insert energy into the scene. Off in the distance, there is a mysterious ghost train making it’s way towards us, as we get ready to embark on the new adventures the day has to offer.”

COOKIES N’ CREAM • 3.5G
LIMITED EDITION

“With the Cookies N’ Cream artwork I was trying to convey the feeling of comfort, relaxation, and home.
This strain is known to lull people into a calm state, providing long-lasting relief to patients throughout the day. I wanted to zero in on that feeling of relaxation you get when you’re in a familiar kitchen.”

" NIGHT TERROR OG "
• 3.5 grams

“While the name of the strain conjures up the opposite of a tranquil scene, this is a strain that will help you sleep. I wanted to capture a similar scene - perhaps a calming, yet sleepless state that calls for the relaxation and sedation that
Night Terror OG provides.”

“All outta’ gum” Nuke Em
• 3.5 grams

Inspired by the 1996 classic video game Duke Nukem 3D, my palette was directly extracted from the iconic cover art. My brother and I used to play the game together with our dad, and I found myself missing those experiences deeply while making this, so I wanted to twist my initial ideas about what “nuke em” implies into something more beautiful. I illustrated the foundation before using filters & liquify to blur and curl the colors together in a different kind of explosion. This hybrid will take your brain through some twists and turns while giving
you that warm, fuzzy feeling.

“Shattered”
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
• 3.5 grams

For this strain, I really wanted to illustrate the pineapple to mimic a shattering effect caused by
collision. The “VFX-inspired” pineapple is surrounded by lower-resolution, pixelated cherries - ingredients in the classic cake - and features a tiny umbrella for shade. For the background, I implemented layered hexagons with a pastel gradient & mosaic FX. The bright colors, shapes, and scattered fragments are all indicative of this sativa’suplifting effects.

“Inner Star”
Star Killer • 3.5 grams

I hadn’t experienced Star Killer until last year, and it quickly became one of my favorite, “bright”, lightly-fruity indicas with its status effects of curiosity and cerebral engagement. I was influenced by the name, astrology, and my love of science fiction. I did some research on Neutron stars and became very inspired by the behavior of the literal “star killer”—the center
of the image representing the gravitational rays that surround the resulting core of the neutron star’s explosion.

“Doughphoria”
Acid Dough • 3.5 grams

The color scheme of this piece is inspired from the taste and smell of this sativa strain. It is known to have sweet, candy-like aromas with bright, pineapple flavors. This season, let’s welcome the summer with a stimulating, creative and energizing high. It will have you feeling euphoric at first and like dough after, hence the name ‘Acid Dough’.

“A Psychological Ruse”
Tutankhamon • 3.5 grams

“I based this piece off of its nickname ‘King Tut’. This sativa strain has a predominantly skunky and sour flavor with a hint of fruit. It’s earthy aroma and orange-green buds inspired the color scheme of this artwork. These colors also reflect the pain-relieving and encouraging feeling induced by consuming Tut. It stimulates creativity and is known to help relieve stress.” – Stu Goyal

“Unguided Path”
White Knuckles • 3.5 grams

This Indica dominant strain is known to have a very relaxing and anxiety relieving effect. Living up to its name ‘White Knuckles’, many describe it as a potent, ‘couch-locking’ high, much like being knocked out by a fist. I made this pattern based off some scribbles I find myself making when I am feeling anxious. It helps me focus in the present moment and regain control of my consciousness, almost like meditation.

“DOUBLE CREAM”
Hybrid Flower • 3.5 grams

"For my illustration I knew I wanted to create something that felt tangible, as “cream” is such a strong descriptor. “Cream” is something people can easily imagine– how it feels, looks, or maybe even smells. I also knew I wanted my illustration to have a sort of bold, groovy vibe to give it an edge and steer away from an association with food. I used lots
of color in a subtle way to create a more graphic look."

“Figure in the Forest”
Night Terror OG • 7 grams

"For this project I wanted to create imagery that wasn’t outright “horror,” but instead felt eerie and unsettling. I decided to take a very different route than my typical artwork and used a greyscale palette to really allow the composition to tell the story. I want the viewer to spot the figure on their own, unexpectedly, because I feel like that’s a certain kind of terror that doesn’t require them to suspend their disbelief."
-Lauren Madigan

“Jarabacoa”

"This piece titled “Jarabacoa” is inspired by the mountains and flowers in the Dominican Republic, Camille’s parents’ home country. Camille enjoys working with different mediums and textures, often mimicking the patterns she grew up seeing in and around her home, including her pet corn snake, Kettle, who frequently appears in her work."
