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
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 year, the 2016 RRA All Consultants Meeting in San Francisco required a tech-forward...Read More
