Zig-Zag and Turning Point Brands, Inc. (NYSE: TPB) announced today the launch of Zig-Zag Studio (or “Studio”), the next chapter of the evolution of content, collaborations and media supporting the iconic Zig-Zag brand, on ZigZag.com.
For decades, Zig-Zag has been widely recognized as a pop culture staple and cornerstone of music and smoking culture. With the launch of Zig-Zag Studio, the brand aims to further its legacy as a media platform and cultural hub where adult consumers and fans can enjoy exclusive content set to inspire creativity through storytelling and digital visuals. Featuring artists from a diverse range of industries and genres, Zig-Zag Studio will focus on art, culture, and lifestyle content, while serving as a launchpad for emerging talent, exclusive merchandise drops and artist collaborations.
”At Zig-Zag we are focused on building unique and memorable experiences for our customers,” said Eric Anwar, Senior Director of Zig Zag Marketing. “Through the launch of Zig-Zag Studio, we have created a platform aimed to illuminate talent through storytelling and foster new ideas to shape our culture and inspire others to enact positive change in our world.”
Zig-Zag will introduce “Studio” in several layers that promote native content, including photography, video and live performances from musical artists. The flagship live music performance series, titled “Studio Sessions,” will debut with a full line-up of performances from emerging musical elites such as Sleepy Hallow, Mariah The Scientist, Marc E. Bassy and Nghtmre. Filmed live in Southern California, fans will be able to stream the series on YouTube and ZigZag.com. Moving forward, Zig-Zag will also showcase a variety of established and emerging artists from hip-hop to EDM.
The Studio’s storytelling video series, “Through My Lens,” gives viewers an inside look at the unique backgrounds and creative processes of artists — from photographers to producers — with a goal of inspiring the next generation of creators. The series will premiere with Sam Dameshek (Photographer), Jeff Cole (Digital Artist), Matt Gondek (Fine Artist) and Dot (Music Producer).
In celebration of Studio’s launch, the Zig-Zag brand will also launch its first limited edition apparel and accessories label dubbed, The 1879 Collection. Named after the year Zig-Zag was founded, the modern collection reflects the trailblazing story of Zig-Zag’s French heritage with an array of styles, including embroidered vintage tees, hoodies and sweatpants, as well as elevated varsity jackets and leather goods.
