Summer of CMYK

Are those really Cushing team members on the set of Weekend Update, in the featured image above?

A few members of our team stopped by Museum of Broadcast Communications this summer to check out The SNL Experience.

Time truly flies when you’re having fun (and busy with all sort of activities, in and outside the office.) From an exhibition table at a Choose Chicago partner showcase to an interactive panel at Chicago Design Museum, there’s been no shortage of happenings at this display graphics company.

You could say its been a summer of CMYK …
Flush with interesting fonts …
And of course, plenty of pixels…

This is our latest edition of From The Flatbed: a quick digest of happenings in and around Cushing! Hope you’ll check it out!
