We jumped at the opportunity to be part of a new cultural institution in lower Manhattan when the co-founder of The Jewish Community Project (JCP) reached out to us for a creative strategy. JCP needed a comprehensive approach to share their aspiration to be a modern community still rich in values, culture and tradition.

Our brand identity gives JCP both a sense of history and a contemporary vibe. We helped them locate their space through our own landlord,  designed the storefront signage, and consulted on how best to communicate JCP is a place to ‘learn, explore and celebrate’. 

We designed brochures, fundraising materials, gala invitations and a website. But the tour-de-force was conceiving Shmuse,  a quarterly magazine giving voice to the thriving community JCP has become.
