About

A captivating journey through Bon Jovi’s world

Collaborating with Jon, his management, and archivist teams a concept was created featuring a series of rooms acting as an entry point to various themed media galleries.

As you land on the website, a journey unfolds revealing a different facet of Bon Jovi's world—his music studio, backstage haven, and office space. Our team created x3 3D rooms consisting of 50 custom items based on references photography.

About

Thousands of artefacts documented, archived, and served up

The bands archivist team had been carefully collecting, documenting, scanning, and archiving a range of materials for 2 years leading up to the digital exhibition project.

Dealing with thousands of artefacts requires a solid and future-proof content infrastructure allowing the artefacts to be easily referenced across the site for both visitors and content managers.

Testimonial

This is a labor of love, meticulously curated to bring you the very best of Bon Jovi’s history. We have archived every notebook, every cassette, every video, guitars, clothes, press clippings, things we didn’t know we had and it’s all there for you, enjoy it.
