About the Show
A professional showcase of design
The PRO SHOW is an annual exhibition of advertising, promotion, branding, photography, illustration, typography, print, web, motion, apps, and more created by members and friends of the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization (CUDO).
This year, over 100 entries were submitted by our members and friends — everything from advertising and apps to typography and web design. Each and every submission was produced by local designers, illustrators, photographers, web developers, filmmakers, and other creative professionals from around Champaign-Urbana.
The 2016 PRO SHOW is organized by CUDO with support from our good friends at Gallery 217, Surface 51, Thunderstruck Design, Premier Print Group, The Living Letterpress, Dean's Graphics, Minuteman Press, 40North, and Fine & Applied Arts at Parkland College.
