Do architects specify brands or company names?
Building product manufacturers and their marketing agencies often overlook the fact that architects specify brands rather than company names.

Logical, really, as we’re all influenced by brands. For example, when you buy a chocolate bar, you don’t go into a shop and ask for a Nestle, you ask for a Yorkie or Kit Kat (both made by Nestle)!Read More

Dragonfly Comments: Facebook, its real name policy and its anonymous app
Facebook recently cracked down on the use of pseudonyms sparking anger amongst the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.
