Just in: C&G's Stolen Heart Video Map for the Leo Baeck Institute was selected as a finalist for the SEGD Global Design Awards 2017. The 3D-printed, projection-mapped tabletop video is the centerpiece of the exhibition “Stolen Heart: The Theft of Jewish Property in Berlin’s Historic Center, 1933–1945,” which was on view at Leo Baeck. Topographic and time-lapse elements mix with stylistic color tints and a custom musical score in the animated video portion of the experience, which is projected onto a 3D-printed, 1:1500 scale, historically accurate model of Mitte, Berlin’s center of culture, commerce and government. Technologies powering the experience include players by Brightsign and specialty projection from Christie. Read more at SEGD.Read More
Two of C&G's projects are featured in Graphis Design Annual 2018, released late last month. C&G's visual identity design for Trellis is a Silver Award winner. Trellis is a digital platform of the well-known American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Designed to be clear and effective, the Trellis identity is a series of repeating “T’s” that emerge from a circle, recalling the product name and its namesake, a structure on which plants grow. This visual metaphor reflects the platform's vision as a place where scientists' ideas are nurtured through collaboration. Platform members discuss climate change, biodiversity, and other ideas that matter.Read More
