A lot happens in 100 years. More than any of us can know. But everyone remembers something: a defining moment … a chance encounter … a discovery that captured their imagination, changed their life, or brought their world into focus. Some are the big events that went global; others are personal stories, rich with meaning for the people who experienced them; all are part of our collective history. These are Our 100 – the stories that define our first 100 years, and set the tone for the next.

To bring Our 100 to life, we commissioned a series of 100 illustrations from a team of ethnically diverse illustrators at AmCo Studio Ltd. Their pictures, imagined in a variety of styles (manga, graphic novel, modern illustrative, traditional, and painted), capture the humanity of the stories drawn from our memories and our archives. Dip in, be surprised, and enjoy the wonderful legacy of our founders.
