Our customer Solvay Infra Bad Hönningen celebrated its 125th anniversary in early July 2015. A chronicle of the plant is presented as a special gift for the employees and guests from the industry, neighborhood and local authorities. The high-quality presentation in DIN A4 format, the large-format illustrations and the short, informative texts on the highlights of the plant’s history ensure that the picture book is gladly taken in the hand and browsed through. The cooperation with our customer is excellent: in Bad Hönningen, appropriate photos are zealously sought out and captions composed.
Historical photos optimized with competent image processing
Our part consisted of designing an attractive chronicle for the Solvay-CD - and in the complete picture processing. Not a small challenge for the AhlersHeinel experts, because some pictures and drawings are well over a hundred years old. A 150 x 100 cm plan of the plant is photographed in ten parts and precisely assembled into a large overall presentation. Many small photo slides needed to be carefully optimized by hand after scanning. It is important to preserve the historical character of the paintings. The light tint of the old documents lends the book its authenticity. In order to underline the quality of the book, the cover is finished with UV gloss coating. The opulent chronicle arrives at the plant in Bad Hönningen right on time for the celebrations – and caused a buzz among the guests, as the plant manager reports.
