Me likes this idea. Perhaps the guy would go for 'Marketing Communication'
or 'Business Communication'. Your own sign could then say 'Technical
Communication'. This way, when people step in to your office and take up
your valuable time to ask about stuff that does not pertain to what you are
doing, you could refer them (when appropriate) to Marketing Communication
down the hall. And vice-versa for the other guy.

Go down the hall and get the brochure guy's expert opinion...
