The Power of the MfA Community

In partnership with DG+CO, a NYC-based strategic communications firm, CC:S designed the 2017 recruitment campaign for Math for America (MƒA) titled “The Power of the MƒA Community”. 

MƒA provides fellowships to over 1,000 STEM teachers in New York City to provide resources for professional growth and learning. The campaign features the collaboration and ongoing peer-to-peer learning with outstanding educators to inspire them to stay in the classroom, promote excellence, and impact their schools and communities. 

The campaign includes brochures, posters, digital ads, and an online toolkit with social sharing graphics, downloadable flyers, and fact sheets.

CC:S is pleased to announce that they will be one of three graphic design studios featured in an upcoming series of videos highlighting design talent and resources to support economic growth in Rhode Island. DESIGNxRI is leading the development of the videos and other promotional assets, which will launch in the Spring of 2017. Stay tuned!

"Waterscapes" Exhibition at Rough Point

For the Newport Restoration Foundation, CC:S designed the 2016 exhibition, Waterscapes: Islamic Architecture and Art from Doris Duke's Shangri La at Doris Duke's Rough Point mansion in Newport, RI.

From NRF's press release: "Two of Duke's greatest passions — her love of the water; and, her love of Islamic art and architecture — came together spectacularly at Shangri La, her exotic ocean front estate in Honolulu and the only home she built for herself from ground up beginning in the late 1930s. Waterscapes explores the theme of water through objects on loan from Shangri La; photographs of the property and other historic sites that inspired its many fountains, pools, and cascades; and home movies from Duke's travels in North Africa, the Middle East, and India to buy art and furnishings for the house."

Along with the two-gallery exhibition, CC:S designed an accompanying fully illustrated publication by guest curators and noted Islamic art scholars Sheila Blair and Jonathan Bloom, with contributions by Kent Severson, conservator at Shangri La. 

And we are excited to announce that we are currently designing the 2017 exhibition, "Nature Tamed in the Landscape, Gardens, and Collections of Rough Point," opening April 6th.
