Where We Work: The Phuse Home Offices

The Phuse is a distributed team across 3 countries, so instead of a central office, we’ve each created our own unique workspaces from which we sketch, design, code, strategize, write, and communicate with clients and each other.

“Sunday Special” Round-Up I

This launch has been a long time coming, and between getting everything together for the launch, and organizing last minute details on some clients’ projects, It’s been a whirlwind of a week. I am thankful for my excellent team and everyone else who has put work into the site behind the scenes.
