The Queanbeyan Hive
The Queanbeyan Hive concept has been brewing in the back of Queen Bee's mind since she moved back to her home town in 2010.
After the purchase of the building in 2014 Helen and Simon kept the building tenanted until their tenants were sadly required to find a larger office. This is when the restoration process began to to help bring this building back to life and up to building code.
The business and cottage has been named The Queanbeyan Hive as it is a place that helps facilitate the cross-pollination of ideas and creativity. It nurtures local communities and businesses to grow.
Helen and and Simon have a love for nature and sustainability and realise the importance bees are in this equation.
To celebrate life we must also celebrate and nurture bees.
The logo (designed by Helen) was inspired by the pressed tin walls within the heritage cottage. Within the tin are repeated patterns much like the cells in a bee hive. The bee shape was created to look like it could have been one of these patterns with its simplicity and mirror like image.
