There are several benefits to the office move. Production consolidates from two floors to one, to occupy approximately half of the office space, with all graphic services fulfilled in a central shop. Clear of obstructions, the open concept encourages team communication, improves workflow, and project turn times. Administrative departments including accounting, business development, and marketing are set to occupy the other half of the floor plan. Customers do not have to travel far for projects or reach staff members: 213 West Institute is convenient to all of Chicagoland, with access to public transportation, major interstates, and two downtown Metra stations.
“We spent several months contemplating many factors of this move and are thrilled to stay downtown and be part of the continued growth in River North, it’s an integral part of our brand,” said Joseph X. Cushing, EVP at Cushing. “We look forward to seeing clients, old and new, in the shop and around the neighborhood.”
Buildout at 213 West Institute Place began in November 2016 and the Cushing team is set to occupy the entire second floor. As part of the move, Cushing has invested in a new HP Scitex FB750 flatbed press to improve the customer experience. Part of an ongoing education lunch and learn series, Cushing welcomes brand and marketing expert James Ellis to present on employer brand marketing on June 21.
During the two-day move, the shop floor is open and projects are being completed. Phone and email contact information stays the same.
