Dunglish discovery


This Dunglish company name has been pointed out to me numerous times, and I even walked by their offices a few times. Then I noticed that they sponsored programmes on the Dutch Discovery channel. I think ‘Dosign’ is an odd Dunglish construction of ‘dozijn’ (dozen) with design. For us mere mortals, it’s an engineering firm. So far, many Dutch people think it’s a silly name. It also reminds me of an earlier posting about ‘diezijn’. The Netherlands is still a free country and people can call their company what they like, but someone has to pay for the botched up Dutch subtitles on the Discovery channel!

    The last name of the establisher of Dosign Engineering is Dorsman. He started his career as a designer.
    When he started Dosign Engineering he mixed his name with design and there it was… Dosign Engineering.
