More than 80 years of Danish craftsmanship have turned Bang & Olufsen into an outstanding premium brand for HiFi and TV systems.
The company wanted their annual report to shareholders to reflect the same quality and innovative thinking that goes into all their products.
The annual report was turned into music. The most important parts were interpreted and sung by a leading opera company in Germany. Facts and figures were turned into arias, overtures and chorales.
A premium edition, a design adapted from the B&O classic BeoSound 9000, was sent to the most important shareholders. The basic edition, an elegant metal CD case, was sent to other shareholders and customers along with a PDF of the complete annual report.
Customers and shareholders were enthusiastic about the idea and the response rate for the premium version was 37% and 24% for the basic version. Buzz at exhibitions and in B&O shops strongly increased interest for the brand.
