How We Work — Flexible and Efficient

Whether you’re interested in remote work or prefer to be in the office, our Work Smart program gives you the flexibility to choose where you work, with hybrid options available so you can have the best of both worlds… especially when it’s time for team bonding.

Regardless of the “where,” Cushing Terrell’s culture of collaboration endeavors to ensure team members feel connected and empowered to do their best work.

Join a Team With ‘Constant Curiosity’

As this design field trip illustrates, our team loves to learn from all who teach. Insights gained from a variety of creative minds with different experiences and perspectives enrich our careers and culture.

We believe opening ourselves up to different ways of seeing the world and listening to the people who experience our design work is key to successful outcomes. This is why our projects begin and end with research, and inform each project thereafter. Learn more about our ongoing research partnerships and initiatives.
