Beiersdorf Unveils New Logo

February 7, 2014


 
Beiersdorf AG, Hamburg, has a new logo with a clean, clear and future-oriented design, according to the company. It symbolizes its “focus on skin care and its concentration on the essential; and stands for the company’s comprehensive strategic development and its upward movement from the foundation of the ‘Blue Agenda.’”

At the same time, it creates a connection to the roots of the company’s rich historical tradition: founded in 1882 by pharmacist Paul C. Beiersdorf, the company became the inventor of modern skin care with the brand Nivea and remains an international leader in its field today.

“Beiersdorf stands for quality, reliability and trust, for tradition and innovation,” said CEO Stefan F. Heidenreich. “Most of all Beiersdorf stands for outstanding products and skin care expertise. The new Beiersdorf logo clearly reflects these values, our core competence and our identity. It is a development of the former logo oriented toward the future and builds a bridge between the company’s tradition and its future.”

The old logo was part of Beiersdorf for 35 years. The word and image mark with the abbreviation BDF and the four dots originally stood for the four divisions of the company—cosmed, medical, pharma and tesa. Today, the company is divided into two business segments: consumer and tesa. The new logo does away with any graphic elements and adopts the font of the old logo, which with its smoothly rounded letters is evocative of care and trust. The color of the new logo is in line with the Nivea Blue, thus creating a bond between Beiersdorf and its strongest brand, said the company.
