Common Citizen

Flint, Michigan

From grit to green

A former gritty lounge in Flint, Michigan,  frequented by local automotive workers, has been transformed into a state-of-the-art cannabis dispensary catering to people from all walks of life. The brand philosophy was to offer a wide range of human-centered , purpose – driven cannabis product that will improve and enhance the every day for as many people as possible.  The black and white architectural palette represents authenticity and transparency  balanced with the warmth and approachability of knotty wood applied to clean lined furniture. The freestanding tables serve as resource centers where visitors  can explore the color coded packaging,  curated by product names like Escape, Treatment , Wellness and Enhance.  Acoustical felt floating ceiling treatment grounds the industrial space and acts as an art installation. Relax, have a coffee at the café or chat with a Citizen advisor or visit the Common Citizen retail shop …. Everyone is welcome .
