  At Farnsworth Group, our process is based in understanding — understanding of design and engineering, of who our clients are, and of how they do business. We listen hard, reading between the lines to identify the needs our clients articulate, and those that lie beneath the surface.
 
We never ask clients to adapt to our methodology. Instead, we get to know the way client teams work and adjust our own processes to maximize collaboration and understanding throughout the life of a project. Our process isn’t about over-designing or creating projects to fuel our own egos; it’s about identifying our clients’ unique needs and delivering real value.
