Leading packaging and branding agency to the cannabis industry adds well-known marketing and public relations expert to its team


SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hippo Premium Packaging (www.hippopackaging.com), a leading cannabis-focused custom packaging and branding agency, announced a strategic partnership with Randall Huft, one of the industry's leading marketing and public relations professionals.

Hippo is known for its innovative packaging designs, logos, and brand development. The company's richly-detailed designs help companies attract interest, increase sales, and generate loyalty.

Huft is known for creating award-winning marketing and public relations programs leading brands both inside and outside of the cannabis industry, including: AT&T, Disney, Kush Bottles, United Airlines, Sage Analytics, Nestle's, Toyota, Denver Consulting Group, Walgreen's, CannaScore, Loews Hotels, and American Express.

"Our collaboration with Randall will give our clients access to exceptional marketing and communications expertise," said Kary Radestock, Co-Founder and CEO of Hippo Packaging. "We are now able to offer a full-spectrum of dynamic brand-building services to our clients and to forward-thinking companies that want to achieve rapid growth and gain a significant competitive advantage."

New Services, New Clients

Hippo made the addition to its team not only to provide a more comprehensive range of services to its clients, but to also help launch four exciting new brands within the next few months.

"The cannabis industry is growing rapidly, and we are scaling up to meet the demand," said Julia Gosnell, Co-Founder and COO of Hippo Packaging.

Huft and Hippo share some of the same clients, who can now enjoy the convenience of a true one-stop-shop for all branding, packaging, marketing and public relations needs."

Tina Urban, Founder and CEO of Urban Labs, is one such shared client. She appreciates Hippo's expertise in creating beautiful packaging and branding, and has worked with Randall for years, whom she calls, "The best kept secret in the cannabis industry."

The company does have a problem though, according to Radestock. "We were thinking that we now need to call the company 'Hippo Premium Packaging, Branding, Marketing, and Public Relations,' but that just won't fit on our business cards!"
