“We are grateful to have great clients who trust us as we push the envelope of creativity,” said Tom Derzypolski, President of BowStern. “I could not be more proud of our entire team – not simply for what they create but also for the spirit with which they create. They are humble and love what they get to do each day.”

The National Court Reporters Association entry was an animated video highlighting the benefits of a career as a court reporter and was used to recruit new talent to the profession. The video ran online and directed viewers to a website to learn more about court reporting schools nearby. The VIP invitation for The Edison, a Tallahassee restaurant that opened in 2015, was a straw-stuffed wooden box that contained an Edison light bulb and an invitation to attend one of three opening nights at the restaurant.
