OUR ORIGIN STORY
It’s the year 2018 and Manuel, one of our co-founders, just having successfully graduated high school went to travel the world. Full of impressions and with a lot of pictures and videos, he returned home. Many of his friends created photo books about their experiences during their gap year. Manuel thought about making one himself too, but what of all the videos he recorded? They’d be gone, lost on a hard drive somewhere, unlikely to be watched again. That got him thinking: How come we can display pictures so easily on our walls and in photo books, but the same isn’t possible for our videos? Shouldn’t have technology advanced far enough to create videos to put on your fridge, on postcards, into books? An idea was born. He started researching the technological prerequisites, how thin the thinnest display ever developed was, and if there would be a market for a product like ours.
Luckily, his two brothers Cedric and Julian were there to support him. Cedric, who studied Mechanical Engineering at the time was up for thinking about the technical implementation. Julian, a business psychologist, proceeded to do some market research. The three brothers then pursued working on this project together and in the spring of 2020, the very first prototype was finalized. memperience was born. And although the idea emerged from a personal wish to create a photo book displaying more than just pictures, we quickly discovered that there is so much more a VideoBook can be: a tool to illustrate the swing of a dress, the sparkling of a piece of jewelry, the features of a service, the spirit of your brand, … You name it! We want to tap its full potential and are looking forward to you exploring it too!
