The flame that fuels change

Building a brand that fiercely supports the LGBTQ+ community

Pride Candle Company does much more than make candles. They donate 10% of the proceeds of every candle they sell to an LGBTQ+ cause, and champion the LGBTQ+ community every chance they get. They needed a brand as powerful as their mission, and we were thrilled to take on that challenge. We created brand guidelines and a unique visual identity that would set them apart and help showcase their pride and purpose—ultimately bringing these elements to life on their website, social, packaging and more.

BRAND BOOK

A brand book to guide a new brand

We had the opportunity to work with Pride Candle very early on to create a brand book that would guide their entry into the marketplace. We worked closely with Pride Candle to establish a brand platform that included their mission, vision, positioning, tonality and messaging along with a new visual identity.

MESSAGING STRATEGY

The right message for every candle lover
To ensure Pride Candle was communicating to all of their customers in the appropriate way, we created in-depth audience profiles. This helped us identify their three primary audiences, their unique needs, and how Pride Candle could speak to each audience most effectively.

IDENTITY

Putting their pride on display

We evolved Pride Candle’s existing brandmark, integrating new colors and typography to create a clean, spirited look and feel.

“Bigmouth took the time to get to know our team and the goals for our business, and they worked closely with us to develop a strategy that was the foundation for all kinds of creative assets – from packaging and logo designs to social media and email marketing.”

INTEGRATED MARKETING
Advertising from every angle
We started by developing a brand roadmap to showcase rollout activities by audience and channel to ensure marketing dollars were efficiently allocated based on strategic goals. We then put PCC’s newly created brand guidelines into practice, developing print, online, video and tradeshow advertising materials.
E-COMMERCE
Refreshing the website
We redesigned Pride Candle’s e-commerce website to create a space to showcase their beautiful product and unique mission and, most importantly, ensure a smooth, seamless shopping experience for their customers.
Packaging that pops
Bigmouth designed all of Pride Candle’s packaging materials–from boxes, to labels, to the fun stickers every candle comes with.
SOCIAL MEDIA
Share it on social
We worked with Pride Candle to establish a social media strategy and create content, images and stickers for their growing Instagram account.
