We're a little behind in maintaining our blogroll (
Vetted Sources at left), but I wanted to draw your attention to a very well-written and considered number published by the Santa Fe-based firm BBDK.

The wife lived in Santa Fe when we were courting, and during my monthly visits I often wished that I could make a living working there; this was in the early nineties, and the closest thing to a full-service design firm was Vaughn Wedeen in Albuquerque. It's an additional comfort to find that someone figured out how to do it, and make such urbane work. Check it out.
