The Co.llection is a variety of events we produce for ourselves and the community we live in.
We create these events to fine tune our craft, discover the most talented creatives, build a community of business leaders and artists, and ultimately use our talents to impact the world.
We create these experiences having to only answer to ourselves, which is the ultimate creative expression. These events are what allows us to continue to create fresh and exciting new projects for our clients.
A Private Island adventure is always on our bucket list. Read More
Sometimes the answer to feel the most human is to escape humanity all together to barely touched natural wonders. We believe that it is in these raw corners of the planet that one can relax the mind, foster authentic connections, and have a once in a lifetime experience with nature.
This is why we use the grid as our canvas to create pop-up hotels in exquisite places around the globe filling our vacancies with the most interesting and strong hearted leaders and creatives.
Coming in 2019, the island has whispered and we must return. We will again stamp our passports and escape back to a completely secluded natural paradise in Exuma, Bahamas full of untouched conch, turquoise waters, and truly endless stars.

12 Companies. 12 Days. COMING WINTER 2019 Read More
The end of the year corporate holiday party was originally designed to be a warm communal celebration of a year well spent.
Unfortunately, so much of this has been lost as these parties have become drab, lacking variety... predictable.
To shatter this monotonous holiday mold, our most jolly project of the year 12 DAYS was born.
For 12 days only, this annual invite-only pop-up experience will exist at the crossroad of whimsical wonderland and cool, with each night filling the space with different companies who are looking for an unforgettable way to entertain their most valued personnel.
We believe that you should use your skills to help others.
Each year we select a few non-profit projects that we pour our hearts into. We use all our resources and skills to create the most impactful work we know how.
We spend most of our lives working to perfect a craft, and it’s important to remember that the purpose of those skills ultimately is to use them to do good in the world.
The day we silence artists, is the day that we silence ourselves. Read More
After working in the industry for just a short period of time, we quickly noticed the unacceptable trend of budgeting large bills for several vendors, yet little to no budget for the arts.
This industry-wide standard has left many artists performing for under valued rates and sometimes completely free of charge with exchange for “exposure”.
At Number Project we believe that if we are getting paid, then the artist should be paid fair value too. Period. #payforart
Each year we partner with an artist to create a limited edition print (100 total prints) to spread the message and share great art with our clients, community, and friends. Last years print is below and was in collaboration with Sergio FarFan.
We are committed to bringing art and music into the Jail and Prison walls. Read More
This year we took 50+ Chicago CEOs to Division 11 of the Cook County Jail on the south side of Chicago for intimate discussions with detainees, dinner with detainees that was cooked by their Recipe for Change Program, a tour of the Jail, and a concert with some of our favorite Chicago artists.
The event was eye opening for both the CEOs, who we feel could help make change happen fast, and the detainees who haven't been this inspired in years.
We are mobilized by these events because real change happens when people of all different backgrounds listen to one other. The universal takeaway from the event was finding the common ground that makes us all similar, realizing that we all want exactly the same thing from life yet come from different circumstances. The world needs more of this now than ever.
These are the events that help sharpen our tools to do great work for our clients.
