Today, we have a pretty exciting announcement to make … but first, a little history! Some of you probably didn’t know this, but Studio C&G started out as an art studio. We focused primarily on sculpture and the representation of pop culture icons in miniature, physical form. While we enjoyed what we were doing, the interest in creating sculpture waned as we grew into a creative agency. While we still love and appreciate art, it was understanding the client experience and catering the art to that experience that we really enjoyed, which is how we got to being a UX focused creative agency.
Of course, starting all over again is an expensive adventure, and there’s a lot of things that you need as a creative agency that you wouldn’t have needed as an art studio. We’re looking to invest in some additional hardware, particularly an iPad Pro, to help make our client’s experiences better, allow us to design on the go, and speed up our current workflow. This is where our exciting news comes in!
We’re pleased to announce that, on October 22, 2016, we’ll be at Collectorfest, a grassroots event showcasing the best in geek collector culture in Calgary. While we are not much into the sculpting scene any more, we still have a lot of the things that inspired us and our art style in the office, and we’ve decided that it’s time to let them go to a new home. Our booth is going to be packed with our art influences, like collectible games and figures, with funds earned from the event going towards the purchase of our new piece of hardware. We’ll also be bringing our remaining Munnys and a ton of accessories for your own customized toys.
Some of the collection that we’ll have for sale include:
Sideshow Collectibles Mary Jane by J. Scott Campbell (signed)
Kotobukiya DC Comics Bishoujo Catwoman
Demon’s Souls Deluxe Edition
Assassin’s Creed II Limited Edition
7″ White KidRobot Munny figures

As our way to say thanks to everyone for their support, we’ll also have ten Collectorfest exclusive prints to give away to supporters of over $100. Check out the full list of collectibles!
Thanks to everyone for your support over the years, and we hope to see you on October 22 at Collectorfest!
