Daly was discharged in 1944, with the rank of Corporal, but continued to work with the military as a Display and Information Officer at the War Assets Administration in Burlington. At this time, the Dalys lived on 'Poor Farm Road' in Underhill Center, Vermont. Gorge also worked as an art director with the Townsend Advertising Service of Burlington until about 1947. In 1947 he partnered with fellow veterans John A. Hamilton and William J. Garneau to from 'Garneau, Daly and Hamilton Advertising Designers'. By 1949, Garneru left the firm and it was renamed Daily and Hamilton. Daly served as Art Director of the firm. In 1949, he illustrated Ralph Nading Hill's The Winooski, Heartway of Vermont and in 1950, Hill's second book Contrary Country.
