Scott Nelson - Alcatel-Lucent

“What we’ve designed is an internet of people.”

After four years of working with Lonelyleap, Alcatel-Lucent, one of the biggest global telecommunications companies in the world, entrusted us with the challenge of crafting a digital experience to host its Annual Review in early 2015.

Our challenge was to show 55,000 employees, customers and stakeholders the power and reach of Alcatel-Lucent’s story. Incredibly, despite its global significance, Alcatel-Lucent’s work and story is largely unknown; yet if it vanished tomorrow, our entire global communications network would never be the same.

Through ten curated stories, we demonstrate the scale of Alcatel-Lucent’s reach, ingenuity, technological prowess and cultural and commercial significance.

By giving these stories a human face, our narratives were able to show not only the enormous cultural and commercial impact Alcatel-Lucent has had, but that its success was made possible through the ingenuity, expertise and perseverance of individuals. Filming across Amsterdam, Tanzania, and Dallas, we captured each story with powerful personal testimony.
