Much of the time, we are an office divided. We have six guys & six girls. We vary in job role, parental status (human offspring vs. dog vs. neither), and thermostat preference.

What do we have in common? We love the work we get to do for clients, and we’re always striving to get better. So to stay updated on what’s happening in the world of our craft, we read books often and browse sites much.

I recently invaded everyone’s personal space to check out what they’re reading and browsing…most were related to work.
