CASA of Cook County

Working with Creative Go-Round has really helped to elevate CAASE’s communications. We are a small organization working on a tight budget, so it’s been a real treat to be able to work with the talented interns at CGR to create high-quality materials. People are always so surprised when they hear that our beautiful annual report and toolkits have been created by a team of students and mentors at Creative Go-Round.”
