WHAT WE DO

We do BESPOKE COMMISSIONS / BRANDED PRODUCTS / SAMPLING / PRODUCT DESIGN CONSULTANCY

Studio Candice Lau is a London based design studio that specialises in designing and crafting beautiful design-led leather products for individuals, creative and production agencies. We collaborate with you to design and craft bespoke leather products specifically for your studio/office and branded gifts to give an overall cohesion to your brand and company. While we have products in our collection which can be branded, what we do and enjoy most is to work specifically with your brand style along with our minimalist design-led approach to create your products.


HOW WE WORK

1. We will start with a free initial half hour consultation to get an idea of your needs.

2. We will then develop a RESEARCH PACK with references, drawings and material samples with an initial cost estimate.

3. Once the design and lead time are approved, we will move forward with a more in depth technical drawing.

4. Once that is approved, we will move onto finally production.

WHAT WE DELIVER

Delivery of work normally includes: material research, production advise, revision of existing designs and possible reworking of designs, new design ideas, pattern construction, CAD sketches of patterns, sampling, small scale productions.

RATES

Half hour initial consultation: FREE
Consultations and development of research pack: £50/hr
