C&G Partners continues their work with the iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City as they near the completion of a once-in-a-century restoration and conservation project. To honor the generosity of their many patrons, the Cathedral commissioned C&G to design a system of donor signage. The program uses classical letterforms hand carved into stone and wood surfaces.
The donor signage appears in a variety of locations throughout the Cathedral and in a new garden. The studio enlisted Hilgartner Stone to hand carve typography based on C&G’s detailed layouts. In addition to donor signage, C&G also created a highly visible branding system for the Cathedral’s restoration campaign that included copywriting, signage, video, an audio tour, printed materials, a website and social media.
