Cassidy Communications, Inc. — or simply Cassidy — was established by Kelly Cassidy Vanek. Her goal was, and is, to bring “the art of intelligent design” to every creative endeavor. Over the years, Cassidy continued to grow, offering high-end graphic design and creative direction consulting services. Today Cassidy has established a unique niche in the health, human services, legal, and arts arenas.
