We're cutting out a little bit early this year so this will be our last Curator until 2019. We hope you have a great, fun, safe holiday and new year and we'll see you in 2019!
Let's start with some news of the week
Marlboro owner joins the game
And, is anyone really surprised?
Cannabis for the Instagram crowd
Cannabition, a new interactive cannabis museum in Las Vegas in sounds cool, including "psychedelic art installations--all tailored for Instagram. (This reminds us of teenage pilgrimages to the West Village of yore and to a temple known to travelers on certain intergalactic byways called Psychedelic Solutions on West 8th. A holy place where other heady readers over 40 may have also leaned valuable lessons.) But back to the present: Is cannabis primed for a social media-friendly museum experience? Hopefully.
Under the tree
Panicked over what to buy this year? Or maybe you haven't even started shopping yet (kudos to you, last-minute shopper.). You're in luck: this piece looks at wares, ornaments and even socks for the cannabis lover in your family/crew/tribe.
We've had an amazing year, worked with some even more amazing clients, and secured them some great coverage.
In early 2018 (January 1st to be exact) we helped drive media coverage for Berkeley Patients Group first day open to legally sell recreational cannabis. It was a scene and we had every media person on hand, from the Bay Area to national news on to report on the historic occasion.
Another client, Sage, made many lists for its Profiler II Humboldt Special Edition. MGRetailer ran a nice piece with Sage leading the way as a portable cannabis tester for any dispensary or lab.
And, in the fall, we were proud to work with the Coppola (yes, that Coppola) team to help them unveil The Grower's Series. One of our favorite pieces was in Esquire, featuring Francis Ford Coppola looking cooler than ever.
We're also excited to be bringing new clients on board. We're at work with the "Ferrari of vaporizers," Firefly and will be unveiling some exciting new innovations for connoisseurs. We're also at work with the pioneering real estate investment trust Innovative Industrial Partners on some profile enhancements ("Hello, CNN? Is that you calling?").
Needless to say, we can't wait for 2019, continue to work with great clients and, really, we feel lucky and honored to work in such a passionate industry.
