What’s in a Brand?

A Pittsburgh Advertising & Marketing Agency

Why an apple box? We get the question all the time and it’s a good one. An apple box is used on the set of a movie, a TV commercial or a photo shoot as a means to raise something or someone. When you step up onto an apple box, everything changes. You gain a higher perspective. The world becomes accessible and predictable.

If you want to stand out from the crowd and be noticed, you need to step up. If you wish to deliver your message loud and clear, you need to step up to Apple Box Studios—one of the top advertising and marketing companies in the Pittsburgh region.
