Riverboom is a company founded by war reporters upon a moonless night in the North-West of Afghanistan, in an infamous valley infested by wolfs, bandits and runaway Taliban. This is the valley where the river Boom flows.
Ever since Riverboom has been operating for world peace from its headquarters in Vevey, Switzerland, on the shores of the placid lake Leman. The Riverbooms are photographers, filmmakers, graphic artists, journalists and writers. Riverboom is an idea factory, a producer and a publisher. For discerning clients we create visual campaigns and build an outside-the-box communication.
Riverboom publishes a series of illustrated books in the collection “Baechtold’s Best”. These are guidebooks entirely made of images for uncommon destinations like the North Pole, Afghanistan or Louvreland. The collection “Versus the World” opposes countries like Switzerland or cities like Florence to the rest of the world in a visual contest. These books exist in paper&ink form as well as application for smartphones. But foremost Riverboom produces the projects of its members, whether a world tour in couchsurfing, a film in Nollywood, a show made of more then 700 posters plastered on the walls of Florence.
Riverboom members are: Claude Baechtold; Paolo Woods; Serge Michelle; Gabriele Galimberti; Edoardo Delille.
