Design to Make a Difference—CUDO Gives 2017

CUDO GIVES was held over the weekend of March 31-April 1, CUDO held a create-a-thon to benefit Courage Connection, a local non-profit helping victims of domestic violence. The event, titled CUDO Gives, brought designers, artists, and other creatives to collaborate and produce original artwork that could be used in Courage Connection’s future marketing.

Courage Connection offers emergency shelter, transitional housing, counseling, tenant-based rental assistance, and job training to individuals who are escaping domestic violence. CUDO sought to create inspiring visuals and messaging that embodied the strength, resilience, and determination of the people served by Courage Connection.

The event consisted of a Friday evening brainstorming session at the CoLab in Urbana. Saturday the group met at Surface 51 to begin work designing the assets. The collaborative atmosphere generated some great work. Visit for more info about the event.
