One of the major milestones on the annual design calendar has just appeared on newsstands: PRINT Magazine's Regional Design Awards issue. This year two of the firm's projects have been honored: the Against the Odds exhibition at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and a monograph of the firm's recent exhibit and environmental designs at the West Point Foundry Preserve in Cold Spring, New York.
Against the Odds encourages visitors to learn about the experiences of WWII-era Jewish refugees and their rescuers through images, original documents, first-person accounts, and multi-sensory interactive design elements. The exhibition is dominated by “paper walls” that represent the significant bureaucratic barriers and extensive paperwork that stood in the way of this heroic undertaking.Read More

The renovation of the newly-reopened plaza at the heart of Philadelphia, Dilworth Park, creates a vibrant cultural and civic centerpiece around transit. C&G Partners created wayfinding, donor recognition and interpretive graphics for the project. C&G's work includes permanent typographic installations embedded in the surfaces of the plaza. One quotes influential former Philadelphia Mayor Richardson Dilworth, from whom the Plaza takes its name: "Some cynics say that our big cities should be eliminated, but you cannot have a lot of suburbs sprawled out in search of a city." We heartily agree. Read More
