As a Certified B Corporation and 1% of the Planet member, TGW Studio holds itself to the highest standards so that our practice can be used as a force for good. This year we worked with incredible organizations that are making a difference in their communities, over half being renewed partnerships and 18 new partners joining our TGW family!

With each new project, we rolled up our sleeves and got our creative juices flowin’. Some of our favorite projects we got our hands in 2019 include:

? Out Alliance Pride 2019

? Auburn Pride 2019

Equal Rights Heritage Center

❤️ Trillium Pillowtalk Campaign

? Clear Water Farms

Outside our clients, our studio sent out 12 Good Gravy emails (psst… if you don’t know what this is, click here). From creating an all-star roster of women who inspire us, a useful donation map, to a gift guide that’s good all year round, we brought content that is handy and heartening straight to your inbox.

Each day we are thrilled to come into the studio knowing our practice has purpose. Being located in a city that is focused on growth, we wish to plug into the Rochester community whenever possible. This year we got our hands dirty, marched proudly, presented readily, and wrapped jollily.

With every opportunity, we brought gusto and energy to our beloved 585. Inspired by the many strong individuals in our community that are working hard for positive change, TGW is honored to support and partner with impactful nonprofit organizations including:
