About Candy

  1. 1. Candy is an ad agency in Athens, Georgia, founded and operated by Michael Lachowski in 1996 to meet two needs: an outlet for Michael to apply his visual and communication skills in the marketplace, and a vehicle to offer modern and genuine marketing solutions to businesses. Serving everything from small entrepreneurial startups to governmental agencies, Candy has proven over time that its images and messages are strong, viable, effective, affordable, original – and popular with clients and audiences alike.

  3. 3. A quick overview: Michael Lachowski graduated from UGA in art photography where he also studied graphic design, print making, installation art, drawing, color and film. He is an artist, photographer, the bass player in Pylon, a DJ, and a member of Athens Design Development. Candy has been a creative services agency since 1996, with forays as a DJ/electronic music record store, a clothing boutique, and the publisher of Young, Foxy & Free magazine. All of these interests and experiences inform and enhance the work that Candy offers.
