LargeNetwork (formerly Largeur.com) is a Swiss media agency and custom publisher.

History[edit]

LargeNetwork was created by the founders of the on-line magazine Largeur.com,[1] which was launched in 1999. The agency soon expanded its activities into two main areas: supplying editorial content to various media organizations and creating magazines, books and websites for companies and other institutions (custom publishing). Over time, it developed a specialization in information strategy and design.

Journalists at LargeNetwork write original articles for Swiss publications such as L'Hebdo (of the Ringier group), the Tribune de Genève (Tamedia group) and PME Magazine (Axel Springer AG). Since 2003, the agency also produces magazines in collaboration with various companies and institutions.

Since 2009, LargeNetwork produces Le Renard sur la Lune, an annual guide to Geneva, for the city’s public-transportation consortium Unireso. Geneva Public Transport subsequently adopted the guide’s visual look for its own communications. In 2010, LargeNetwork began producing a daily page for the Swiss newspaper Tribune de Genève. Called "Aujourd'hui" ("Today"), the page targets active urban readers, offering ideas for daily activities each weekday.
