The Daily Illini

Cassidy Brandt
Hi, I’m Cassidy and I’m a junior in graphic design. I started working at The Daily Illini in April 2018 and have been learning and growing so much since then. When I’m not designing, I love to partake in portrait photography, running, listening to/playing music, looking at pictures and videos of cute dogs, and writing in my journal!
