Branding, Website Design, Packaging Design

Bend, OR | Denver, CO | San Francisco, CA

Cosmic Glue was founded by industry veteran and certified sommelier, Rick Bakas. Rick founded this company with an intention to elevate the overall brand image of legal lifestyle product branding. After 25 years Rick has earned a reputation as a conceptual yet prolific commercial designer.

His industry knowledge of wine & cannabis product branding, packaging design, website design and branding solutions is vast. He often acts as a liaison across multiple disciplines during a project. His obsession is to help you grow your brand with a well-designed user experience. We have worked with clients from all over the country including Bend, OR; Los Angeles, CA; Denver, CO and San Francisco, CA.

These are a sampling of high-profile work where Rick was directly involved as a designer:

In 2003, he left NIKE and moved to his hometown of Boulder, Colorado to grow cannabis for a parent suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. There, we worked in the TechStars ecosystem under mentor, Tom Higley. Bakas learned about UX design and startup culture. In 2011, he cofounded and designed a mobile payments company that was sold in 2014.
