How would you describe the work your teams do for clients?

“The work that we do is focused on our clients. It supports their mission, vision, activities and lives. That’s not to say we don’t have opinions and ideas or that we don’t fight for those ideas. We do. But we do it in the context of meeting our clients’ design challenges.”
