CUDO Pro Show

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 90 entries were submitted by our members and friends — everything from advertising and apps to typography and web design.
