DesigningBuildings article on architectural ironmongery

For a couple of my clients, I have considering the production of various infographics related to the products or services they provide – these are proving popular online as a simple way to summarise various types of data (surveys, system operations, timelines, etc), and good infographics can become quite ‘viral’ on social networks such as …
