Celebrating 200 years of great books

HarperCollins Publishers 200th Anniversary homepage shown in iPad

HC.com/200 is a multi-faceted interactive glimpse into 200 years of HarperCollins, one of the largest book publishing companies in the world. HarperCollins plans to celebrate its bicentennial throughout 2017 and this website is a primary way of commemorating this important anniversary.

The site features 200 iconic HarperCollins titles, a timeline communicating important milestones in the company’s history, archival materials, relevant stories, and a section devoted to quotes about reading and writing from prominent HarperCollins authors.

The content for this anniversary site structured and guided the user interaction and experience. We opted for subtle design and interaction flourishes that enhance and do not overwhelm the visual content. Public response has been positive with numerous posts tagged with #hc200.
