175 years Bertelsmann


Under the motto "175 years of Bertelsmann - the legacy for our future", a web-based multimedia chronicle was created in 2010, providing access (in some instances for the first time ever) to a great number of texts, images, audio and film records from the Bertelsmann archives. Navigation solutions were found which matched the diversity of the media company. The chronicle could be accessed via a floating, freely rotating cube, whose sides each represented one era of the company's history. A timeline showing the milestones in virtual media stations provided the basis for a virtual trip through 175 years of Bertelsmann. The corporate history was linked with the experiences of customers and the public through the opportunity to interactively contribute personal memories and share them with other users.
