We are an idea agency that solves advertising challenges with innovative concepts and powerful in-house production. We develop ideas with a higher purpose and execute them with excellence for maximum growth.

What is C&I?

C&I is a combination of fresh, incredible ideas, the perfect team — who fears no project or deadline — and a little bit of magic.

It is tough to describe what C&I means to us because it’s more than a company. Being able to help business owners and corporations accomplish their marketing goals through storytelling is an incredible feeling, and we are addicted to seeing these campaigns work.


Doing the Impossible.

Boundaries are excuses. We have none.

Every day we rise, we set out on a new journey with the sole intention of pushing ourselves — pushing each other — further than we ever thought possible. That’s how we grow. Not just as individuals… That parts easy. Growing as a team, though. That’s much harder. It requires more love, more drive, more ambition, more selflessness than you can imagine. But that is what makes us unique.

We aren’t afraid to unite our clashing personalities — to open up to each other completely — with the sole purpose of creating incredible art.

Dreaming Bigger

We are all connected by the stories we share. Our superstitions, beliefs, and ambitions are evident in the characters we create; the desires that guide them, the faults that destroy them, and the themes that define their existence. Though the space in which we tell our stories has evolved beyond the communal fireplace, the emotions that our stories solicit remain the same.

Thanks to technology, our ability to wield the power of imagination is greater than ever before. We can build worlds, not simply through word or photography, or the union of the two, but far beyond that. So, what are we waiting for?


Story is King.

This video project began as commercial for our company and ended being something far larger. More than just a tool for promotion, this video explains a lot about who we are and how we are different. It resulted in a company motto. We love our jobs, the fact that we get to wake up everyday and do what we love is surreal to us. More than that, we get to help people promote and market their dreams.

Our Team

Our media professionals are the secret sauce of our company. They are the kind of people that fall asleep studying their craft, becoming better. Our team is actually the best. Period.
