Revolving Door: Tracking Architectural Firms’ Layoffs

1228layoffs.jpg

Speaking of our friends at Agency Spy, if you read their wonderful site on a regular basis (and it should be illegal for you not to if you work in the ad business), you’re likely familiar with their popular, yet gloomy Twitter feed featuring breaking news about who is getting laid off at ad agencies across the country, in both the singular and the plural (and mostly the latter as you might have guessed). Thanks to a very kind UnBeige tipster, we were given word that another Twitter feed has popped up inspired by Agency Spy’s work that is tracking the layoffs in the architectural industry, aptly titled “Archlayoff.” And if you follow us on a regular basis and despite what the head of the American Institute of Architects has been saying lately, you’ll recognize that it too is also a very, very busy feed of late. But a warning: read it only if you’re interested in having your day ruined by sour news. Though we supposed you’re not getting much happy stuff anywhere else either, so maybe it’s better just to bite that bullet and face up to these here stark realities.
