Starting off with 5 big boxes of old photos, brochures, letters, contracts and whatnot, this project was kind of a treasure hunt! A huge part of the job was to collect and organise all the information in order to understand the story and put everything on a timeline. It was important to make a visually interesting book which tells a story without having to read a lot of text, but at the same time describe the events in detail. The final book contains over 130 digitalised photos and documents spread across 180 pages. The book was printed in 500 copies, and was a gift from the company to all employees and partners.
