When I went through all the products that Design 1st had brought to market, a lots of them had something that we needed I knew they had the skill sets that needed. When I met them, it felt like we were a part of the family. They were also hones and transparent" Kurt Francis CTO, Molecule "If it weren't for Design 1st, the project would’ve been delayed.
