The design specialist is aiming to transform the way that design professionals create, communicate, visualise and work. Ambitious, but a worthwhile vision.

Reinventing productivity with Project Gigjam

In the current business landscape, business decision makers have at their disposal a wide variety of software-as-a-service and general business aps that help track crucial developments.
