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
Alongside a new visual identity for our second decade, we're thrilled to formally announce a new firmwide mission for C&G Partners: Design for culture.
Several years in the making, this it the result of analysis of our own work over the first ten years of our studio, reflection on the world today, and internal discussion of how we can contribute. We have also been inspired by the academic field of cultural and social anthropology. C&G Partners will remain a multi-specialty creative studio, but now with a refined purpose. We are now dedicated to design for culture — from cultural organizations to organizational culture.

This fall, C&G Partners longtime client Union Square Partnership once again revealed the depth of the district's culinary community at the 21st Harvest in the Square. Chefs from neighborhood restaurants served signature dishes, used fresh local produce, and paired it all with local wines and microbrews. C&G Partners was once again tapped to create visual branding, event design and graphics for this mouth-watering annual fundraiser. Harvest purple and gold foregrounded curious botanical forms built from silhouettes of silverware, and the imagery spread across banners, menus, invitations, table top signs, posters, ads, and other Harvest material. The playful compositions were designed to suggest leaves in a burst of fall breeze. Most delicious of all, the event raised significant funds to support the community.Read More
