The Hills SCC
Designing a homage to home for The Hills Signature Candle Collection
The studio worked with Chep and Chebet Chichir, the sisters creating natural, eco- friendly and premium candles hand poured with love in Nairobi, Kenya.

The brand colours were developed to complement the earthy attributes of the brand while also paying close attention to the scent profiles so the colours could be adapted to existing and new scent
We designed a responsive logoword that is simple at a glance but on a closer look plays reference to the hills with the strokes of the letter A removed.
THE GARDEN COLLECTION
The garden collection plays both a homage to the gardens and Butterfly center in Nairobi and introduces a new scent category to the local candle market. The collection invites you to pay attention, "we want people to be appreciative of their surrounding around them." We designed the packaging to evoke the feeling of stepping into a garden - with illustrations of flowers matching the collection's scents and fauna accompanying the scents, embossed on the box for a tactile garden experience. The logo takes a gold foil finish reminiscent of a sunny day in the garden.
For The Hills SCC., staying true to the brand’s roots is an important part of their values so we incorporated illustrations of hills reminiscent of the hills in Nairobi, Kenya onto the outer packaging, evoking that mindfulness every time a consumer interacts with the packaging.
"Asmah’s work is absolutely incredible! She delivered and completely understood what we wanted our brand to emulate. She met all deadlines as expected and we couldn’t be happier as a brand to see our vision come to life. She was very welcoming to all the changes we wanted, although they were minimal, she hit the nail on the head. We’re extremely happy!"
