Ed's creative abiltiy is endless! He is talented and responible and gets along with others. He is very organized and always on task. He did some award-winning designs and his talent would be an asset to any company.

- Rene Plizga, Account Executive at Macomb Daily Newspaper


I am a business coach and work with entrepreneurs to assist them in their marketing, advertising and goal setting. Ed Cass has a wealth of talent in interpreting the customer needs. He assisted in developing and creating a branding package for two client's who had little understanding of branding. He was patient as we worked together to create a strong brand. His creative talent hit the mark every time. I thought of Ed as part of the client team. Work was bar none, excellent. I would recommend Ed for any position or contract work. He delivers.

Ed and I worked together at The Macomb Daily and I found him to be extremely creative as well as focused on how he could utilize his talents to help bring revenue to the company. He was committed, loyal and reliable, a valuable member of the team. Ed is a very hard-working, energetic employee and is always full of great ideas. Ed and I worked on the graphic design strategy of a yearlong series that I wrote that won a national award. Ed went above and beyond and outside his job classification to assist with the project. His enthusiasm and desire to do the job right were always appreciated.

Ed Cass was a key member of a small but dynamic marketing team at The Macomb Daily newspaper in Mt. Clemens, MI. Ed was the Creative Services Manager and was responsible for designing promotional and marketing materials for dozens of internal and external initiatives and event sponsorships throughout the year. Ed also worked tirelessly on the "Echoes of Macomb" community book project which produced not only significant revenue for the Macomb Daily, but provided a well-received and successful "keepsake" for long-time residents of Macomb County. Ed was delightful to work with and is a gifted and talented professional.

I worked with Ed Cass at 21st Century Newspapers. Ed was the creative director while I worked in advertising sales. Frequently, we worked together to design and plan special advertising pages in the newspaper. I found Ed to be creative, professional, and dedicated to producing the highest quality end product. It is rare to find a person who possesses both artistic talent and great business sense. Ed is one of the few.

- Norene Cashen, Writer, Writer-in-Residence, Student


Ed is more than a very talented artist. His work is not only beautifully done but usually flawless as well. I know because my job is to proof the work of other artists and his work never needed corrections. You can always count on Ed.

- Judy Pearsall, Senior Corporate Graphic Designer at 21st Century Media


Ed Cass is a pleasure to work with! He was and still is always positive! Even though he got really busy, he always took the time to help me. We were the only designers in the Marketing Department for both the Macomb Daily and The Oakland Press.

Thank you, Ed, for being an inspiration to me and giving me a chance at The Oakland Press! My career may not be where it is today if you hadn't given me the opportunity to be a great designer for both newspaper companies.
