A History of Community Spirit
CGI Communication CEO Bob Bartosiewicz has come a long way since CGI’s early days operating out of his basement in 1989. It didn’t take long before they had a legitimate office and several employees. Soon CGI and its artists were passionately creating community graphics posters, and their city “Personality Maps” began popping up in communities across the nation, garnering them a great deal of recognition. These Personality Maps are renderings of the city with landmarks, points of interest, recreational options with local businesses highlighted, and importantly the “secret sauce”– the things that make a community special.
1997 saw CGI begin their Streetscape Banner Program for small to medium-sized cities. These banners featured gorgeous artwork that enhanced the street poles they hung upon, proudly promoting the community’s local businesses.
Never ones to rest on their laurels for long, CGI’s successful eLocalLink project, launched in 2004, shone a deserving light on hundreds of beautiful municipalities throughout the nation. While 2005 saw CGI Communications CEO Bob Bartosiewicz usher in a new era for the company, all in the name of community spirit when he partnered with the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
This partnership enabled communities nationwide to tell their stories through professionally produced online videos. A partnership with the National League of Cities quickly followed, and the Community Showcase Video Program was born. This initiative allows communities to showcase their personality, their history, their people, and their business through the power of digital media.
