CHAPTER 01

A SEASON OF CHANGE telling our story through the years brand perspective who we were who we are our people


telling our story The Unusual Story of Burt’s Bees: A Revolutionary of Our Own Beeswax Burt’s Bees is an American personal care products subsidiary of that describes itself as an “Earth friendly, Natural Personal Care Company” making products for personal care, health, beauty, and personal hygiene. As of 2007, they manufactured over 197 products for facial and body skin care, lip care, hair care, baby care, men’s grooming, and outdoor remedies distributed in nearly 30,000 retail outlets including grocery stores and drug store chains across the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Hong Kong, and Taiwan from their headquarters in Durham, North Carolina. Originating in Maine in the 1980s, the business began when co-founder Roxanne Quimby started making candles from Burt Shavitz’s leftover beeswax. Their attention to quality brought success and eventually led to the bottling and selling of honey, a practice that slowly diminished as the company evolved as a corporation. Eventually, other products using honey and beeswax, including edible spreads and furniture polish, were sold, before moving into the personal care line. Burt’s Bees manufactures their products with natural ingredients using minimal processing such as condensation, extraction, pressure cooking and hydrolysis to maintain the purity of those ingredients. In addition, every product has a “natural bar” which gives a percentage of natural ingredients in that product, often with detailed ingredient descriptions. Burt’s Bees operates under a business model referred to as “The Greater Good,” which outlines that all company practices must be responsible. To reflect this philosophy, Burt’s Bees uses all natural ingredients and materials, engages in environmentally friendly business practices, and extends its humanitarian efforts to the community at large.

She used some of our profits to buy tracts of forest land in northern Maine to preserve them from development.

anatomy of the logo A well-deserved and refreshed look will put Burt’s Bees forward in to through the new stage. As we know, the use of bees is what distinguishes the brand from other similar companies, like Tom’s of Maine. So the design of new logo come up with some ideas and keywords about bees. Bees are a symbol of community - they are interdependent, that is, every bee depends on the whole community and works for the community. Human communities cam be interdependent, too. Thus, the symbol of the new logo is a group of honeycombs to represents the brand concept. Three overlaping hive shapes mean the close and steady relationship among people, while nobody can live without others.
