A New Desktime
After a lot of hard work I'm excited to announce the new redesigned Desktime is live! And we think it's a looker.
Desktime is a tool that makes it easy as hell to find amazing workspaces all over the world. In addition to finding new space Desktime has also built the first tool online to help you manage that extra space allowing you to quickly and simply bill, schedule and manage the space, so all you have to do worry about is building a community and making some extra cash on the side.
Two Letter Words
Two Letter Words explores the combination of abstracted geometric letterforms and the resulting words and marks they create.
