The paper book that you read, watch and listen to.
The brand and advertising story of Galp, the largest Portuguese oil and gas company
A book with such a long storytelling had to incorporate the innovative dimension that has always been at the core of Galp.
Using augmented reality, we tell the story of 40 years of advertising, making it happen in the virtual plane of the book. Worth highlighting the visual research work of the brand's architecture throughout all its rebrandings.
Images trigger the usage of augmented reality through the app "40 Years of Energy". On the cover is the AR evolution of the logo over the last 40 years.
The Portuguese popular culture and history of each decade since the '70s are recalled and contextualised.
