Why did we choose the name Isgenuity?

We wanted a name that reflects who we are and what we do. Very simply it is a play on two themes: “is genuine” and “ingenuity”.

The concept of “is genuine” is our approach to practice.  We believe our culture and client relationships are grounded, focused, and reflect a genuine commitment to who we are and how we work:  We have an uncommon client focus.

We believe that “ingenuity” is a type of creativity that is not overlaying the current trend in design onto a commission.  It is an inventive, creative, resourceful and astute approach.   It is the ability to integrate disparate concepts, ideas, needs and influences into a new whole and create enlightened experiences.
