About Us

Candor is a branding studio with an approach accessible to brands both large and small. We partner with our clients to understand their brands, build strategies to help them grow, and then act on those strategies with exceptional creative work. We believe in cohesive visual brands and can design everything to build one: logos, identities, websites, posters, publications, products, interiors, books, signage, and events.

Our clients are with us every step of the way. This reflects our belief that great brands are authentic brands and that authenticity can only happen when our clients can openly share their passions, ideas, and stories. Our job starts with listening.
