The ADC100 program was created by C&G Partners for the Art Director’s Club, an association for the advertising and creative industry. ADC100 provides a unique opportunity to delve into the rich history and vibrant community of an entire industry over the past century. Building on C&G’s extensive expertise in developing anniversary brand programs, the firm crafted a comprehensive ADC100 brand identity and online content strategy that spanned an entire centennial year.

At the core of the ADC100 anniversary brand identity is the concept of a “hijack,” where a temporary variation of the ADC logo takes center stage, dominating every touchpoint throughout the company’s anniversary period. The circular C in the ADC logo cleverly doubles as the Roman numeral for 100, subtly embedded as if it has been awaiting its moment to shine since the organization’s inception. The typography selected for the brand identity is the elegant and versatile Raisonn√© Pro font family by Colophon Foundry.

To infuse historical significance, images featuring club officers, esteemed members, award winners, and iconic Cube-winning work are periodically inserted within the last “0” of 100, showcasing visually intriguing and meaningful subjects. The ADC100 anniversary branding not only pays homage to the existing ADC letterform but also highlights the organization’s rich archival imagery, celebrating the people and groundbreaking work that define its legacy.

The multi-part ADC100 timeline isn’t just designed to commemorate the centennial but also serves as a lasting cultural record, ensuring that the ADC brand’s heritage and significance continue to resonate long after the anniversary celebrations have concluded.
