Slide Why Candle? Because we believe that in the struggle to stand out, elegance and intelligence beats flashiness and noise, every time. It’s not always the easiest way: the most beautiful and impactful things need the most skill and experience to create. But it’s worth the effort. Our business is to show yours in the best light.

Slide What we do Candle creates memorable, effective communications that build businesses and burnish reputations. Specializing in B2B communications, we create advertising campaigns, make corporate films, and produce promotional materials, from exhibition banners to annual reports.
