2016 CUDO PRO SHOW

A PROFESSIONAL SHOWCASE OF DESIGN


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.


PRO SHOW edition of MEET THE PROS

MEET THE PROS is a continuing lecture series featuring local heroes from the Champaign-Urbana creative community. Stop by Gallery 217 for engaging lectures by Ralph Roether III and Anna Gutsch & Johann Rischau of Norden German Design Studio. Examples of thier work is on display at the 2016 PRO SHOW!


PRO SHOW dedicated to the life and work of Matthew Farrell

This year's show is dedicated to designer Matthew Farrell, owner of Matthew Farrell Creative, who passed away this past June. A CUDO board member and graduate of Parkland College’s graphic design program, Matthew specialized in developing brand identities for area businesses.
