Launching “i’clektic” Our Digital Design Studio

The company’s name i’clekticis derived from eclecticism which comes from the Greek “ἐκλεκτικός” (eklektikos), literally meaning “the best.” Eclecticism is a conceptual approach that does not hold rigidly to a single paradigm or set of assumptions but instead draws upon multiple theories, styles, or ideas to gain complementary insights into a subject, or applies different theories in particular cases, and choosing the best of them all.
