Project Case Study

Skye Candles

A new business based on the Scottish isle, Skye Candles were looking for a sophisticated packaging redesign.

In 2010, Mucky Puddle helped develop their product to accommodate stellar growth in the business.

Skye Candles use only natural soya wax, which is not only good for the environment but, unlike paraffin wax, good for customers too. The blend of soya wax burns at a lower temperature giving a better fragrance release. Every candle is handmade from start to finish, ensuring only the best quality product reaches their customers.

With the business expanding year on year, Skye Candles wanted their brand assets, design and packaging to match the dedication to quality found in their products.

We worked with the team at Skye Candles, exploring different ways that a brand refresh could take their superior handmade product upmarket and compete with other, most establish brands on shop shelves.

Developing the brand for a sophisticated, luxury product.

Whilst satisfactory at the beginning of the business, the existing brand artwork had become dated and didn’t convey the quality of the product. With the concept of quality in mind, we reviewed competitor brands, created moodboards and developed a number of different concepts – maintaining the spirit of Skye Candles and with a focus on luxury.

We developed the final visual mark after presenting the team from Skye Candles with a series of options, iteratively reviewing and refining each based on client feedback. With the aesthetic style defined we also developed additional brand assets for use across the business.

Along with the delicate yet eye-catching logo, we defined a range of product colours to reflect the various candle fragrances. Then we created packaging materials for the candles in concert with working with a local supplies company, giving each item a crisp & luxurious appearance.

Iteratively refining and reviewing, at every stage of the process.

Skye Candles continues to use the packaging design & visual mark we developed, reflecting the appropriateness of the style relative to the business’ character, aims and goals.
