Our company, Insight Graphics, has been in business since 1991 when we started publishing a journal on the health benefits of traditional Chinese medicine, culture, and exercise. Since then, many "Eastern" practices like Zen meditation, Acupuncture, Feng Shui, Taijiquan (T'ai Chi), and Qigong have become more accepted into Western cultures. We have been at the forefront of this transition with the journal providing a way for instructors and practitioners to share their stories with the public.
We like to experiment with various projects. We have our office and home in an avocado grove and converted our operation to 100% solar. Our home was designed with Feng Shui principles in mind and the micro-climate allows us to grow over 40 different fruit and nut trees for our own family alongside a commercial avocado crop.
It may seem strange to see avocado-based products in our list of things we make. But as avocado growers for the past 15 years, we know the amazing properties of raw avocado oil and developed a method to extract small quantities of oil for our own use. We use the oil for cooking, as skin treatments, and we recently starting making our own soap products.
Since we enjoy designing and making things, we started tinkering around with various crafts such as candle making and other crafts where we can use our calligraphy and design skills. We create small quantities of each product and do everything we can by hand because we enjoy putting our passion into each product.
