“Design for brand legacy is at the core of everything we do – both as a business, and also as a sports design consultancy acting on behalf of the global roster of clients who have entrusted their creative brand vision to our team,” said Infinite Scale Founding Partner Molly Mazzolini. “Now it’s Infinite Scale’s time to lock in our studio’s legacy succession plan as a member of the Elevate family to ensure that our collective Clients and Team Members are a part of something bigger than all of us.”
