Global design teams now have more ways than ever to communicate with one another. We have real-time collaboration, video-conferencing, the cloud, virtualization, mobility, texting, email, VoIP, and source control.
Everybody is now available anywhere at any time of the day.
We have the ability to track what everybody is doing and devise new ways of improving productivity.

Any company can enable its top designers to work anywhere in the world.
