BIC communication stands out with its unique, simple and off-the-wall sense of

humor which always focuses on the product assets. A successful brand that

doesn t take itself too seriously: this could be the motto of all the media

developed by BIC for its lighter during the last 40 years.

For its 40th anniversary BIC is relaunching some of its legendary

decors such as California , the very first decorated edition.

The brand has also created a number of anniversary limited

editions, for instance the Cupcake theme. Always

reinventing itself, BIC is once again innovating in 2013 with

decors including special textures and fragrances.

A parade of colors and decors

In 2013 BIC launched the second edition of the online contest Design on

Fire . The participants had to create an original lighter decor before

submitting it to the vote of other users and to a jury of professionals. This

year 13 European countries participated in the event.

The winner is a Swedish student whose decor is going

to be printed on one million BIC® lighters.

BIC also makes waves thanks to talented Internet users
