The Mission

Hive is a boutique video production company with a long list of both corporate and commercial clients. The company needed a brand identity refresh that reflects the brand’s decades-worth of experience as a unique ‘hive’ of creativity and enterprise in media arts. The website continued this experience with a cinema-inspired concept of black limbo space and richly-colored photography and video.

BRAND PERSONALITY

THE HIVE STUDIOS reminds people of truth. It connects people to a more natural balance of old and new, mind and body, indoor and outdoor, dynamic and quiet – a balance that both speaks of the past and draws people forward to the future.

Brand Promise

Purpose:

Creating balanced, artful and insightful films that ‘cut to the chase’ on the truth of the matter (whether educational, campaign-driven, observational documentary or commercial branding).

Passion:

  • Any content that offers connection and insight to the natural world, human ingenuity, spirituality & human psychology, sustainable solutions on a big scale, and compassion.
  • The skill, the process, the gear knowledge and the art of film-making itself. It is a world full of surprises.

Final Concept

We convinced the client to simplify the brand’s existing logo design and move towards a bolder graphic identity, further enhancing the honey bee image as symbol of the company founder — the “Queen Bee” in a hive of digital media creatives.

Web Design & Development

We felt it was important that the web experience offer a crisp visual portrait of the brand’s film products, so we implemented full-width dynamic photography into the background of each section, further amplifying Hive’s dynamic approach to multimedia projects.

“Nobuhiro is both a genuine artist and a dedicated professional. He went above and beyond to make sure that I was happy with the design details, and stayed patient as I continued to add complexity! I would highly recommend his services.”
