Design to

We Are...

a graphic design firm founded by Carrie Chatterson in 2005. We work with progressive and socially responsible organizations: arts and cultural institutions, colleges and universities, social enterprises and technology innovators.

For over 12 years, CC:S has been creating designs that matter—message-driven, strategic, and highly visual—to help freshen and strengthen brands. From concept to completion, we work closely with our clients to deliver solutions that engage, inform, and inspire their audiences, and ultimately add value to their organization.

We offer a wide range of full-service capabilities including brand strategy and visual identity design, print design, digital design and development, and exhibition design. We pride ourselves in fostering long-lasting relationships with our clients, becoming an extension of their organization to support all of their design and communication needs.

Beyond our core team of designers, we have a wide network of talent that allows us to build teams to meet specific project needs. This includes photographers, illustrators, developers, writers, video production artists, printers and manufacturers.
