Founders Ralph H. Cushing (standing) and Everett O. Terrell review designs circa 1965.
Born of the big skies and lush mountainscapes of Montana, Cushing Terrell’s roots in the American West run deep. But since our founding in 1938, we’ve grown beyond the natural boundaries of the mountain region – outward, and with an upward trajectory reflective of a bright future. Characterized by the rising angles in our logo, we’re driven by the desire to forever improve.
We’re creative yet careful, accomplished yet modest, thoughtful yet fun. But we never forget the landscape upon which our firm was established, on a late summer day along the banks of the winding Boulder River. The natural beauty surrounding these founding moments continues to underscore and inspire our lives, work, and brand.
