CC:S will discuss designing for the greater good and how the studio works with leading nonprofit organizations to help them create awareness, reach donors, and impact social change through print and online media. Using three prominent clients as case studies, the studio will discuss how it approaches the challenges many nonprofits face today and how creativity was incorporated when faced with limitations. These clients are the ACLU, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and the Tenement Museum.
