BNP Paribas launches, its digital tool for deciphering change in the world

March 23, 2015

BNP Paribas invites you to discover its latest digital project Living the Change: a tool for deciphering change in the world by putting images, meaning and perspective to what we are living through today.

Cultural and economic (r)evolutions, overthrows of balance, new ways of sharing, entertainment… The world is in perpetual flux. The tide of civilisations has left its share of innovations, techniques and progress that have contributed to improving our daily lives.

Giving Living the Change its solid grounding in BNP Paribas is the contribution to the project’s content made partly by the Group’s experts (L’Atelier BNP Paribas, BNP Paribas Real Estate and BNP Paribas Personal Finance).


Through a variety of themes, Living The Change examines all the major changes that have happened and those that are under way. BNP Paribas wants to give a fun and historical edge to the project to make it both discovery and a learning experience, allowing the audience to appropriate the knowledge being presented.

Digital media is the major revolution of our century, making it the ideal vehicle for transmitting the essence of BNP Paribas, and the most logical vector for the Living The Change project. The project is illustrated and animated by Guillaume Kurkdjian, and is in itself the embodiment of through the technical challenges it faces. For example, the transcription of animated gifs into .svg animations or its full HTML5 structure.

On 19 March, Living The Change was launched with its first big theme: The City. Its role as the cradle of change, as well as the developments and phenomena that have shaped it over the course of history, and from all points of view, be they technological, architectural, economic, migratory or energy-related.

Close on the heels of this theme are two more: “Means of communication” on 2 April and “Consumption” from 16 April. Other content will feed into throughout the year.

Anecdotes – historical facts – general knowledge bites…A myriad of bite-size content!
