Read about a host of solutions Cushing provided to Chicago artist, Ben Holiday

Holiday, Not a Vacation

A painter by trade, Holiday develops a mix of works he refers to as urban drawings, culling inspiration from a number of materials such as wood, canvas and acrylic. He also creates a variety of reproduction prints and other derivative products including wallpaper and carpet designs.

Originally a rendering artist and architect, Holiday began working with Cushing on projects including presentation documents and drawing set deadlines at an organization called Partners by DESIGN.

Span of Printing Projects

Summing up the work Cushing has fulfilled for the local artist can challenging since it runs the gamut of style and uses. On one hand, there is artistic output including large format canvas prints, large format scans, acrylic and cutouts.

On the savvy business flipside, Holiday has ordered a bevy of presentation items including business cards, marketing materials, Océ prints for architectural plans as well as presentation books and boards.

Evolution of an Artist

Why does Holiday continue to work with Cushing? He has been able to nurture artistic capabilities, enhance service offerings and grow his business. Through personalized consultation from staff and new equipment Cushing has procured, creative possibilities evolve.

For instance, direct to acrylic prints is a service Holiday began offering at the suggestion, Erik Reczek, a member of the Cushing with almost eight years. The Customer Service Associate knew Holiday’s business and realized the ability to print to almost any surface (something Cushing offers), would appeal to Holiday. After Erik provided information, Direct to acrylic prints became a solution.

The Cushing team is always a phone call away, and anything unresolved usually only takes minimal investigation to find the best solution.
