Devil’s Weed

May 27, 2010 | 6 Comments

Designed by Rockit Science Agency | Country: United States

“The term “Devil’s Weed” was used by the Spanish Inquisition to discourage  the use of tobacco.  Based on this rich history, Rockit Science Agency took an old world approach to the design and development of this new cigar line.

The idea came from brainstorming the idea of what mephistopheles or “the devil” would package a cigar into in order to pursued the consumer to smoke his cigars. We realized he would want it to be subtle and not flashy, therefore the idea behind the look of the brand, using basic materials to create a unique and cohesive brand. Specially designed cedar boxes, handmade in the Dominican Republic, would double as packaging and point of sale display units.

Special cigar bands utilizing authentic gold powder and special printing processes were also used.”

    Very subtle indeed. I don’t smoke at all, and even I want to buy this product.

    this looks pretty need to a cigar smoker :)
    the case makes me want to put it on a coffee table, the cigarwrapper looks special as well. the cigar band is somewhat of a disappointment, not really out of the box is it?
    overall: it makes me want to buy one! and thats what its all about

    This is some of the best package design I’ve seen in a long time. Extremely rich design… anyone know what else these people have done? Products?

    I Have been smoking cigars for 2 1/2 years now about 2 or 3 a day and i smoke black nicaraguan cigars the strongest they keep the mosquito’s away, and if this cigar is as strong as it seems. I’ll be switching, The packaging and the name are so cool, great job.
