Design Concept
As the studio manager's name is Chain Smoker, we add some cigarette elements to it.

There are some cigarette elements on the back, and we use diamond cut to indicate a lit cigarette.

We add the "CKW" letters on the top case to light bar which resembles a cigarette. What's more, in order to keep consistent with the lit cigarette on the back, we made a sinking treatment on the light bar top to imitate the ash after igniting.

Although we used some cigarette elements, we do not encourage smoking, so we engraved “ Smoking is harmful to health” inside the bottom case for reminding.
