Sample pages from the book

The past ten years have seen Huawei working with telecoms service providers across Europe to help them connect their customers to content, services and products that help them in their businesses and their daily lives. In this decade of change Huawei has grown from an unknown start-up in Europe to become the number two global communications firm. 
This book was published by Huawei who asked Studio Stauss to develope a visual concept to mark their 10 years activity of "Connecting Europe". We looked for a coherent visual language which compliments the brand and its attributes, and used editorial and historical imagery to avoid a stock photography look and to bring in some humour. Content visually represents "China, Europe and Telecommunication".
