Community

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 with college-level design students and recent graduates to give thoughtful feedback on portfolios and/or answer questions about working in the design industry as a professional.

Graphic Design as a Career

Exploring Graphic Design as a Career

We offer group presentations to high school students interested in pursuing a graphic design degree in college. Topics include an overview of the graphic design industry and the different roles of a designer, why graphic design is important, the skills and expertise needed to succeed, how to develop a portfolio and a guide to selecting the right college for you.

Interested in having us visit your school? Connect with us to arrange a group presentation.

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.
