Sherwin-Williams
Online Historical Timeline

The Sherwin-Williams Center of Excellence is a welcoming 2,500 sq. ft. space that our firm designed to showcase the heritage and invention that made Sherwin-Williams one of the largest and most recognized coatings companies in America. One of the exhibits that we designed is a 40 ft. timeline that presents the history from 1866 to present along with stories of significant leaders, innovations and growth.

The client asked that we transform the timeline and all its content for use on their website.

For ease of use, the content can be selected by decade and present that era’s narrative and imagery, or simply scroll horizontally through 150 years.
