Our Philosophy

Service, Creativity, Quality and Value


  • First and foremost, keeping our clients satisfied is the only way for us to stay in business.
  • The First Rule of design is consistency of elements and the Second Rule of design is that the client's wishes overrule the First Rule and any subsequent one.
  • Our work days and business hours are flexible.
  • Make our clients look good.
  • Changes are good.
  • Our clients deserve the best advice we can give, especially regarding cost


  • Apply a rigorous analysis, synthesize an effective solution.
  • It doesn't help to be pretty if you do not perform well.
  • It doesn't help to be pretty and perform well, if you can't afford it.
  • We are not here to open new artistic paths, but is always fun when the client's needs require us to do so.


  • Quality is not measured by cost but by performance.
  • Quality of Design is imperative.
  • Keep up with state of the art tools and materials.
  • Social and environmentally conscious.
  • Quality and value are not opposites.


  • To overcharge will only bring our demise.
  • To cheapen will also bring our demise.
  • Keep our overhead low
  • It is better to make a small profit for many years to come, than a large one just once.
  • Value and quality are not opposites.
