This week, we teamed up again with AAM (American Alliance of Museums) and NAME (National Association for Museum Exhibition) for the annual NAME Summer Mixer. The event brought together exhibition-minded folks and emerging museum professionals for an evening of networking and mingling—over summer-themed cocktails and snacks, of course.Read More
Our transformation of Rockefeller University's biomedical imagery into modern art was featured in local and international design press this week. Outlets including Graphic Design USA, Design Week, The Drum, DesignBote and Paper Blog published our recent communications materials and website redesign for the University.
To capture the institution’s innovations in bioscience in a compelling way, we took actual biomedical imagery generated in the University’s labs and transformed it into art. This visual technique is now a signature design element for the University’s communications materials.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
2017 Atlantic Hurricane season begins today and the NOAA's prediction of above-normal activity makes it imperative to stay prepared. That is why C&G's long-term client NYC Emergency Management expanded the Know Your Zone campaign from bus shelters, posters, newspaper, and other print ads to include a digital element. The campaign now appears on LinkNYC kiosks across the five boroughs.Read More
When is a design studio an art gallery? At the "After—Hours" opening reception in the studio one evening last week, art and art lovers took over C&G Partners as friends, family, and designers mingled over prosecco, charcuterie, and beats by DJ Keith Madden. Whether it was animations and films in the conference room, watercolors hung on the closet doors, or immersive installations in the restrooms, all the art was created by C&G staff after hours, reflecting the multidisciplinary professionals that have made C&G their home. And did we mention the prosecco?
Check out the artwork we all made at the After—Hours website.

The Washington Post lifestyle column "Crunched," included the article "Your interior designer might be very happy," based on C&G Partners illustration for the first AIGA Design Census. The article features Partner Maya Kopytman's infographic that applies job satisfaction data to the length of a smile. Read the article here.Read More
On April 22, the Earth Day March for Science in Washington was a celebration of the "role that science plays in each of our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world." C&G was proud to contribute to the cause, writing and designing t-shirts, posters, and stickers for our longtime client The Optical Society (OSA). Because OSA is the leading professional association in optics and photonics, it was only natural to suggest slogans like "Don't Mess With Science, We Have Lasers" and "See the Light, Fund Science."Read More
Who knew: interior designers are the happiest design professionals. The least happy? Architects, apparently.
For AIGA and Google's first annual Design Census 2016, C&G Partners' Maya Kopytman chose an iconic form to illustrate facts about job satisfaction across 17 different design industries. "By applying census data to the length of a smile, we depict designer satisfaction in various industries," describes Maya. “ In some industries designers are happier than others, but overall—we're a happy bunch.”Read More
