The Candle Factory is an old, abandoned candle factory that is being converted and revamped into a swanky mixed-use residential tower.


We were inspired by the history of this development, and decided to use the authentic architectural elements of the building, i.e. its unique metal-framed glass windows, as the foundation of the logo and the brand identity. We created bespoke typography to reflect the same inspiration, and to match the smokestack color palette. Our design evokes the industrial heritage of the project, merging subtly the old and the modern, and paying homage to the tradition of the building and the neighborhood.
