  • Grandma Press

    Driven by her lifelong commitment to education, Dr. Marie Amoruso decided to explore the impact of the controversial “Common Core” standardized curricula and tests that are used to assess K-12 student achievement. She filmed interviews with an array of parents, administrators, teachers and professors to create the documentary “More…than a score.” Dr. Amoruso needed assistance to make her film project take flight and reach her audiences.

  • I Love Sugar

    I LOVE SUGAR is much more than a candy store. The high-end retailer takes the candy we all love and delivers a magical experience. State of the art design, including custom fixtures and attention to details, is what the experiential retailer believes makes shoppers often refer to I LOVE SUGAR as "the Apple store of candy". In a trade dress and trademark infringement case brought by their competitor, It’Sugar claimed that I LOVE SUGAR infringed their trademark and the overall look and feel of It’Sugar retail stores.
