After 5 months in the making, the CUDO PROSHOW opened with a lively reception on November 11, 2016 at Gallery 217. Working with fellow co-chair Gloria Roubal, we spent many long nights and weekends organizing, marketing, and finally installing the show, with the help of a dedicated team of volunteers. We were thrilled by the diversity and quality of the entries this year. 

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.
