Since our beginning, CC:S has been anchored to its community. From mentoring students and young designers to volunteering our services to local nonprofits, we believe in using design thinking and expertise for the greater good.

Young Designer Portfolio Reviews

Professional Development for Young Designers

Our door is always open to meet virtually with college students and recent graduates to give thoughtful feedback on portfolios and/or answer questions about working in the design industry as a professional designer.

Graphic Design as a Career

Exploring Graphic Design as a Career

For high school students interested in pursuing graphic design as a career, we are creating an online resource that will launch in early 2021, which will introduce this dynamic industry, what designers actually do, the skills and expertise you need, how to develop a professional portfolio, and a guide to selecting the right college.

Design for Good

Design for Good

We believe in using design for the greater good to make an impact in areas that are important to us: social justice, mental health, arts & culture, climate change, social services and education. At the start of each year, we select one nonprofit to partner with on a pro bono mission-driven design project.
