The greatest reconstruction project in modern history is the subject of the new book Power at Ground Zero: Politics, Money and the Remaking of Lower Manhattan, written by Columbia University Professor of Real Estate Lynne B Sagalyn. The fall of the twin towers on 9/11 had an undeniable global impact, but the sixteen acres in Manhattan where the Twin Towers fell saw the most physical destruction. Released by Oxford University Press on September 9, the book is a definitive account of the post-9/11 rebuilding of Ground Zero and the Lower Manhattan district. C&G Partners is privileged to contribute cartography and infographics that synthesize a decade of research and illustrate the symbolic reconstruction project.Read More

We know from experience that in a citywide emergency, New Yorkers need safe places to gather. Our longtime client, NYC Emergency Management, just launched the Share Your Space Survey to identify local spaces that can support emergency operations and outreach events, and we made them a "time lapse drawing" to help explain. The spot follows the illustrator's hand as it builds sketches of whole scenes, in a twist on the typical whiteboard video. Each individually photographed frame creates an illusion of movement that is clear, engaging, and easy to understand.

Minimalistic yet distinctive, the monogram is designed to be stylistically appropriate for the art publications in which it appears.
