Call me a digital nomad. This week, I'm working remotely, from a location I won't disclose yet. (If you're curious, you should follow our YouTube channel for the reveal.) As digital nomads, we get to immerse in diverse cultures, and that's great. But even better is how we get to hang out and collaborate with different people. This week, I've had the pleasure of co-living with a couple of my closest friends, who also happen to be in the design
