in·sight [ ĭn' sīt ]:

"An extended understanding
of a subject resulting from
identification of relationships
and behaviors within a model,
context, or scenario."

Insightful design requires both
a mastery of appropriate
technology and a deep
connection to the greater
community.

We are committed to
expanding our technical
knowledge base, and to
broadening our understanding
of the social and natural
environment.
