On Wednesday, August 5th, we celebrated our official name change (from Askew Nixon Ferguson Architects, INC. to ANF Architects, INC.).
Originally Lee Askew III Architects, the firm name was changed in the past to reflect the leadership/partners. As the firm continued to grow and more partners were added, we had to stop the cycle. It was no longer practical to name the firm after the partners. Imagine Askew Conrad Dicus Ferguson Garrigan Nixon Wieronski Architects... It doesn't roll off the tongue, does it?
Eventually, the decision was made to change the name to ANF Architects. For the past few years we have been using ANF Architects as a DBA, but as of this week, it became our official name. To commemorate the occasion, we had a party with cake & champagne and asked each employee sign their name to our INK Day card to be mounted & framed.
