              Welcome to our new Hive category brand guide

    Designed to introduce you to our new branding
    structure, we present you with our intentions for the
    future branding of Hive.
                                                            It is important that the Hive brand evolves with the
                                                            ever changing requirements of you, the therapist and
                                                            your client alike. Taking this into consideration at all

    The ‘HIVE’ Logo

                                                 Long established as a symbol of confidence for beauty
                                                 professionals making their purchase decisions, the Hive
                                                 hexagon is of utmost importance for the future of Hive.
                                                 However, even this has fallen under scrutiny within the
                                                 company re-brand. The Hive gold has now been replaced
                                                 with a one-colour mono logo. This simple twist on the
                                                 original logo, allows for complete flexibility with all
                                                 aspects of design and marketing, and not least adds a fresh
                                                 contemporary look to the established brand.

                                                 The newly adopted Hive corporate colour is a rich deep purple,
                                                 a colour associated with quality. This will appear on all Hive
                                                 corporate branded stationery, documents, marketing materials
                                                 and communications. The aims of our re-brand are to:

                                                  create a single, consistent and clear visual identity
                                                   for Hive and it’s brands
                                                  project Hive as a professional and contemporary organisation
                                                  standardise Hive’s visual representation in all areas
                                                  establish Hive as a market leader
