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

Small Project, Big Heart: Commemorating Allan Rosenfield at Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health
Unveiled this week, the Allan Rosenfield Tribute Wall designed by C&G Partners commemorates the public health legend and founding dean of the renowned Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Along with Rosenfield's family, in attendance were fashion icon and amfAR chairman Kenneth Cole, former Planned Parenthood President Faye Wattleton, and others who shared the late dean's commitment to protecting women's health and public health worldwide. C&G was privileged to plan and design the project, for our client Clare Rosenfield. Of all our projects, it might have the smallest footprint, but definitely has the biggest heart.

Russell Reynolds Associates (RRA), with more than 370 consultants in 46 international offices, is a global leader in executive search and leadership consulting. Since 2014, C&G Partners has partnered with RRA's expert marketing team to create event branding, print, media, physical decor and signage for three annual events. Although the events were on different continents with different themes, our approach was the same each time: develop a unique event theme and visual identity that ties to the RRA brand, deploy it as ubiquitously as possible, and thoughtfully conceive all applications large and small. This approach has been fostered by the collaboration between C&G and RRA's own expert in-house marketing team. Without their expertise, encouragement, and willingness to explore creative possibilities, we would not have been able to produce this work.
This year, the 2016 RRA All Consultants Meeting in San Francisco required a tech-forward...Read More
