The focus of experience and knowledge which, when properly applied as part of a diverse team, maximizes outcomes


That which is acquired from years and decades of rigorous education, training, mentorship, and most of all, experience



Which broadens and deepens the reservoir of knowledge and experience that we can draw on and apply toward design solutions



A quality that grows over time with confidence, partnership, and repeated success



Creator, creation, creative – that echo of the divine which, properly channeled, transforms the ordinary into the sublime



That which we value most with our friends, clients, and those with whom we do business; it is built slowly, over time, on trust and shared experience


When the spark of creativity strikes the reservoir of knowledge and experience, insight – to a problem, a solution – is sure to follow


That desirable quality in thinking and problem solving that comes from knowledge, experience, and diversity. The deep well never runs dry


In Ancient traditions, the symbolic attributes of the letter ‘G’ are imagination, creativity, purpose, order, and helpfulness. The cardinal direction ‘West’ represents confidence, business, energy, persistence, emotion, psyche and movement. At GWest, we embody these positive attributes in our approach to design, work, and life.




The way we work, believing firmly in the unique contribution of each stakeholder in creating a much greater whole than any of us could working alone




That which Harry S. Truman called “the reward of suffering”. There is no substitute.
