OUR VALUES

Working together is a partnership

We're not like most design agencies out there.

We make a commitment to our clients and become an part of your company.

We're your creative partners.

We don't just build websites

We craft digital engines based on your business goals and customers needs.

 

 

We believe in the power of collaboration

Candelita + You is where the magic happens. The sky's the limit, and together we'll find that sweet spot.

 

 

We're not too big into those buzzwords

We like to use plain English (and sometimes Spanish) in our communications. We will impress you with our work, not with big words.

 

Design matters

Design fuels our lives and it goes beyond fonts, colors and brand boards. We solve problems through design & translate your vision with a design process.

 

Quality over quantity

We work with visionary business owners of all sizes.

We're not looking to fill out a quota of work, we're looking for meaningful organizations that want to excite their customers and inspire their competition.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

FOUNDER &
CREATIVE DIRECTOR

A word from Jennifer Dopazo

Candelita was started as a vision to offer better solutions and products to my clients and visionaries out there. My own path allowed me to work with people from around the world with different skills and backgrounds, giving me the opportunity to offer more and create solutions greater that myself.

 

I'm curiosity-driven maker of packaging, printing, illustrations, websites, graphics-whatever comes under the umbrella of design. I love helping entrepreneurs and businesses create enviable brands that spread your big idea and change the world.

 

I'm not your cookie-cutter designer. I am an American Graphic Design Award Winner, an instructor of multiple workshops in countries around the world. I have also been featured in CBS, New York Business Journal, NYFA, Parsons, RTVE, Spain Arts & Culture, SXSW, Reuters, and Yahoo among others.

 

My personal mantra in life: Be driven by your own curiosity.

OUR CORE TEAM & STRATEGIC PARTNERS

Candelita is a full-on collaborative virtual agency based in New York with talent from all around the globe. Our core team is small but fierce: a designer, an engineer and a strategic account manager, hailing from South America & Europe.

All this talent and quality of work is at your fingertips from the moment you decide to choose Candelita as your partner.
