Ingenuity is the hallmark of a successful design narrative.  Without it, there is no authenticity, there is no signature, no defining quality to the product.  Ingenuity is the catalyst that implores the onlooker and or client to respond and commit to your brand and products.  Don't be the same, be better!  -Stacey Carlton AIFD EMC
