PIMCO(Pacific Investment Management Company, LLC) is a multinational investment management company founded in 1971. They are headquartered in Newport Beach with 14 offices across 11 countries and has 2,300 employees. They wanted to document their firm wide quarterly meetings, and rebrand their digital presence. We started working with them in 2018 to create a cohesive visual aesthetic.
Every quarter, PIMCO portfolio managers and executives from their different offices would come to the headquarters in Newport Beach to have meetings on investment strategies and outlook. There were high profile individuals such as Ben Bernanke, Richard Thaler, and John Boehner come to advise the firm. We were asked to come and photograph the general sessions.
PIMCO was in the midst of a“DigitalTransformation Initiative”: the rebranding effort of their digital presence. An important part of the initiative was to have an updated and unified portraits of their leadership and experts within the firm. Their portraits were done in their Newport Beach and New York offices.
