TongRo marks a quarter of a century in business.
Clip Island series by TongRo Images
In 1997, TongRo released image packages. The images and the fonts in the packages made it a lot easier for the users to print, advertise, publish, design websites and make educational material. Furthermore, Images in the packages were available in AI, WMF and JPG. This was the moment that TongRo transformed the stock image service from analogue into digital.
Selling proper products of images to customers brought a big change in the Korean stock image industry. By making customers to pay for licensing, TongRo substantially reduced the risk of copyright infringement. Increasing civic awareness of copyright is definitely a worthwhile job, and TongRo was appreciative of being a part of it.
Since TongRo was founded in 1995, it has been seamlessly growing with all the TongRo members' hard work. We've settled down as a leading company as we focused on developing and improving stock content market in Korea. As a result, we launched 'subscription service' that is optimized to Korean customers, and that turned out to be a significant growth factor of TongRo. Now that our service platform provides photographs, illustration, graphic design, video clips, sound tracks and more, it is loved throughout the country.
TongRo has been able to provide our customers with diverse images with refreshing models and background thanks to our international partners. In addition to maintaining our strong partnership with you, we will continue to import your novel content. We hope our 25th anniversary would be more than a celebration, and become a chance to strengthen our partnership with corporations and individual photographers all around the world.
TongRo team will have a small commemorative party in our building in consideration of Covid-19 situation. In spite of any crisis, TongRo has not stopped being creative and challenging, and we never will.
