Worker B Candle
This unusual combination of letterpress and laser cutting creates a knock-out package design. The bees, flowers and honeycomb forms climb around the package’s hexagonal shape in such an organic way. A truly stunning concept and execution!View Edition Thirteen
Beeswax production is an incredibly labor-intensive task, both by the bees and our neighbors at Worker B. When we started developing packaging, we decided to focus on the bee’s process of collecting wax. Layered with different elements of the process, custom illustrated flowers climb around the label over the top of a laser cut honeycomb pattern. This movement alludes to the cycle the bees go through to collect this wax throughout their entire life. We then letterpress printed this label in house.
This beautiful dark paper was hit with a subtly darker ink for tone on tone contrast. This was followed by a custom die cut complete with unique locking closures. The delicate and detailed pattern in the background and logo were then laser cut. It’s always a treat to see our creative run through the studio from concept to completion.
