RIVER NORTH 420 W Huron St - MAP

14-Apr-17 – High school students studying digital media are getting more than a tour and souvenir from a commercial printer in River North.

Fine Arts and Digital Media students from Back of the Yards College Preparatory High School spent a day recently at Cushing, a custom print and display graphics firm. Cushing partnered with the school to bring students from the classroom to the shop floor. After a tour of the facility, the students spent the day in the production department, observing operators at work, project workflow, and how digital print files become finished collateral.

These students are working toward Adobe certification. “The opportunity to see how designs translate into a finished product will make an impact for years to come,” said their teacher, Robert Anderson.

A spokesperson for Cushing says they would like to make this a recurring event, at least four time a year, and involve more local high schools.
