“We Really Do Offer The Freedom To Design”

The entire CFA team and I are pleased to announce the completion of the rebranding of our company, social sites, and website.  We wanted a fresh new look that better reflects our times and services in a constantly changing world and the professionals we represent.  I described CFA to as a 29 year old “start-up” because we have always reacted well to change and our brand should reflect our unique ability and staying power.  CFA was successful the year it was created, 1984, and has never looked back.

Special thanks and acknowledgement goes out to our designer Ryan Kovich. Ryan devoted several months of his valuable time and energy studying the creative world of architecture and design and contemplating our brand identity.  He took that knowledge and his creative energy to bring us this great new brand.  Find Ryan Here.

We would also like to thank our creative editor David Gibbons.  David did a tremendous job taking our ideas, filtering out the rhetoric, and providing rock solid content that expresses our brand perfectly. Find David Here.

Finally, we would like to thank our consultants and clients who gave us their valuable input throughout this process.  Our rebranding efforts success would not be possible without them.

David Dillon, longtime Dallas Morning News architecture critic, dies at 68

Hat tip to Dallas Morning News.

I have enjoyed reading Dillon’s critic’s over the years.  I am sorry to learn of his passing.


David Dillon, for 25 years architecture critic of The Dallas Morning News and one of the country’s foremost writers on the subject, died early Thursday of a heart attack at his home in Amherst, Mass. He was 68.

A wordsmith of finely chiseled phrases and sometimes devastating wit, Mr. Dillon brought Dallas architecture to national attention, and he introduced local readers to important architectural developments elsewhere. His singular critical voice helped shape civic debate on issues across North Texas, from underdevelopment in South Dallas to the evolution of the downtown Arts District to sprawl in the northern suburbs. He wrote as avidly about little-known local architects doing good work as about international stars.
