The heritage of P&O Cruises can be traced back to 1837 when they were involved in transporting mail and shipping around the world. When cruising for leisure started much later, the organisation turned to artists to create advertising posters to promote their services, creating distinctive branding of the time.
Years later when the company archives in Australia were rescued from destruction by former employee and budding cruise historian, Rob Henderson, he created what has now become known as The Henderson Cremer Collection.
When P&O wanted to look back to their history, as well as draw on design motifs for a range of P&O Heritage souvenirs, they engaged Juicy Projects to manage the extensive hi-res archival scanning project.
Over several years, the project scanned approximately 5,000 items ranging in size from small drink coasters, to enormous (and fragile) display posters 2 x A0 in size that required specialist photographic studio capture.
