Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Docta Consulting + Design. Inc. was born from our passion for the best project delivery experience possible. We believe each and every project starts with understanding our audience (our clients) and getting to know them at a deeper level through engagement, education, and communication. Our process focuses on listening and understanding our clients' motivations and desires through the "discovery" aspect, so that we can reveal what our clients really need, instead of what "we think" they need. With over 45 years of combined experience, we continue to strive for perfection at every stage, collaborating with our clients and bringing creative, yet simple design solutions that will enhance their lives for many years to come.
