The Process

The discovery process cycles through research and development to creative design, before reaching a comfortable point where a proposal and budget can be prepared. Our job is to work within your budget, obtain the greatest value for your company, and ensure you get a return on your investment. If requested, we can recommend a budget figure.

What happened on this day in history?


Heinemann’s Hot Rod
In a world where the focus seems to shift daily from one technological wonder to another, the value of solid engineering—a design well thought-out and well executed—is too often overlooked. This is as true in jet aviation as it is anywhere else. Today more than ever it’s important to reflect on the work of pioneering …
American History Book Review: Mayflower
Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War  by Nathaniel Philbrick; Viking, 2006 The challenge to Nathaniel Philbrick in Mayflower is that it’s a story we think we already know. In the popular imagination, the Pilgrims are seen as God-fearing folk in buckled hats and white bonnets enjoying a Thanksgiving feast with their Indian friends. …
Norton I: Ruler of All He Imagined
He owned San Francisco. With his self-proclaimed royal status as “Norton I, States and Protector of Mexico,” he wore a tall beaver Dei Gratia, Emperor of the United hat with a plume and rosette, dressed in a blue suit with tarnished gold-plate epaulettes and carried both a cane and a tricolor umbrella. His oversized shoes …
The Hurricane that Saved Jamestown
Blown off course by a Monster storm in 1609, the crew of a single ship miraculously saved themselves, rescued Jamestown and restored English support for colonization in the New World — and inspired Shakespeare. It had once been hailed as “Earth’s only paradise,” but now England’s first American colony at Jamestown was coming to ruin. …
‘The Necessity of Refusing My Signature’
Although the mastermind of liberty, when it came to the Constitution, George Mason just said no. “Let us never lose sight of this fundamental maxim —that all power was originally lodged in, and consequently is derived from, the people. We should wear it as a breastplate, and buckle it on as our armour.”  Thus spoke …
Code Alpha: The President is Coming
Lieutenant General Thomas Keck unexpectedly found himself at the president’s side on September 11, 2001, and now for the first time reveals his full inside account of those dramatic first hours when America was under terrorist attack. As in much of the country, it was a beautiful, blue-sky day in Shreveport, Louisiana. Lieutenant General Thomas …
‘They Are Just Deportees’
Biographer Joe Klein called “Plane Wreck at Los Gatos” the last great song Woody Guthrie wrote. Guthrie read a newspaper account of a January 1948 plane crash that killed 32 people, 28 of them Mexican farm workers who were being deported by the U.S. Immigration Service. He was incensed that the immigrants were reduced in …
American History Letter from the Editor- October 2006
Always an Immigrant Nation Any day now, with a good bit of fanfare no doubt, the United States will cross another milestone in its 230-year history. As of this writing, according to the U.S. Bureau of the Census population clock, there are 299,094,419 of us. Factoring in birth rates, death rates and migration, the bureau …
A Day to Remember: September 10, 2001
Conflicting reports emerged from Kabul, Afghanistan, on Monday, September 10, 2001. Some claimed a suicide bombing had indeed killed Ahmed Shah Massoud, the leader of the last remaining faction opposing the radical Taliban that controlled most of the country. Others claimed he had survived the attempt by two Arabs posing as journalists, members of a …
