  • The Smithsonian's newest museum in Washington, D.C., the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), made history when it opened this weekend as the only national museum exclusively dedicated to African American culture. C&G Partners is thrilled and overjoyed about this milestone for the Museum. We are also humbled to have played a small role, creating the digital Guestbook and Member Honor Roll that helps visitors leave something of themselves behind when they enter or leave. NMAAHC is the latest example of this digital guestbook project: there is a story behind the evolution of the idea, and a history of other installations leading up to this one.

  • 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.

  • Established over 70 years ago, The Teagle Foundation advances liberal arts education through knowledge-based philanthropy.

  • 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.

  • This comprehensive signage program was part of a rebrand for the University of Maryland’s Baltimore campus. One key goal was to strengthen ties to the brand of Maryland itself by using the iconic black, yellow, red, and white colors of the State. C&G Partners has been collaborating with the University for over a decade to realize this extensive system.

  • We're proud to have designed the brand identity for the London-based Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, who celebrated their four-year anniversary this weekend. The identity combines eponymous gallery owner Kristin Hjellegjerde's initials into a custom "KH" monogram. The conjoined slab-serif letters draw on the simple vocabulary of uniform lines. Minimalistic yet distinctive, the monogram is designed to be stylistically appropriate for the art publications in which it appears.
