Cory Grosser + Associates (CG+A) is a globally successful, boutique design studio based in Pasadena California. Founded by Cory Grosser in 2002, the studio specializes in leveraging beautiful design to create emotional connections between clients and their customers. This approach is called “Creative Intelligence” whereby design is the force behind creative strategies for business and engaging narratives for people. The studio’s work lies at the intersection of commerce and culture and includes architectural design, furniture design, brand strategy, and creative direction. Although small and highly focused, the studio has helped some of the world’s largest and most prestigious brands use design to succeed in the modern global marketplace.
Over the past 16 years, CG+A has evolved to operate under an “associates” model, whereby each discipline of the studio is led by a highly skilled architect, product designer, graphic designer, or strategist, respectively. This structure, combined with a highly collaborative studio culture, allow each project to benefit from the both the experience of senior level designers and the fresh perspective of a team with diverse areas of design expertise.
