We're happy to announce a new partnership with Architexts! In this first edition of their bi-monthly contributions, they let us know a little more about themselves. 

Architexts is a webcomic about a fictitious architectural firm called Franklin + Newbury Architects, Inc. Our comics are largely based on real-life experiences, giving a tongue-in-cheek chronicle of what it’s really like to be an architect.

The production staff is made up of designers and drafters ranging from students or recent graduates in their early twenties who still have high expectations for their careers (and the profession), to more experienced designers in their mid-thirties who would like to work in a better firm, but feel stuck. Your office may not be exactly like Franklin + Newbury Architects, but we are sure you will be able to relate to the situations and hijinks that occur.

In the six years since we started we have published over 1,000 comics. After all this time, many of our readers have shared with us their personal stories of how our comic has mirrored their own experiences. Recently, we decided we wanted to collect all those stories and insights and write a book about the realities of architectural practice, titled Architects, LOL. Check out Architexts for information on submitting your stories and insights for this book.
