Jonathan Alger is a founding partner of C&G Partners, active in all forms of communication design, especially exhibitions, interactive environments and public spaces. He is a dedicated advocate of strategic thinking and the thoughtful use of technology. He served two years as national President (2006-2007) of SEGD, the Society for Environmental Graphic Design.
Reflecting the many ways in which graphic design shapes business, society, culture, and causes, the 58th Annual American Graphic Design Awards by Graphic Design USA gave four wins to C&G Partners projects. This is a new record for the firm, and the first to span all of our disciplines in one award year: brand, exhibition, media, print, signage and web.
C&G projects took home top honors in the Graphis Design Annual 2022 competition, presenting winning work from top designers and firms across the globe. A Gold went to the ADC100 anniversary branding, designed for The One Club for Creativity. And our ambitious Donor and Scientific Prize Recognition System for The Rockefeller University brought back a Silver, in the Environmental Design category.

This past May, New York City opened its newest public park: Little Island. The park’s avant-garde design and prominent location—seeming to float above the Hudson River—has made it the latest “must see” attraction in New York. SEGD member firms C&G Partners (EGD designers) and DCL (fabricators) collaborated with the park’s architects, engineers, and landscape architects to create a program of family friendly signage and graphics for this “oasis of everything fun, whimsical and playful.”
Jonathan Alger served as past SEGD President and is Managing Partner and co-founder of C&G Partners. His clients span from American Express, to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Smithsonian, the 9/11 Museum and many more. Jonathan has received multiple honors from AIGA, AAM, Communication Arts, and holds a degree in Architecture from Yale University.
