We hope this letter finds you and your families healthy and safe. James got caught in the storm that swept the coast of the USA while on a trip to New York City for his Mom's birthday. But don't worry! He managed to stay out of harm's way, and we hope you did too.
James has been on the road a lot, but don't think that hampers our ability to get things done. He's got a couple more trips planned for September, and you can view the entire schedule here. Be warned: when he's on the road, James's email response time might be delayed by a full fifteen seconds.
Seriously, though, somehow James manages to keep things on track while traveling as well as he does at home. That miracle of time-management coupled with the power of the talented new team at The Phuse means that work is full steam ahead as always.
If you've been working with us recently, no doubt you've noticed that our team keeps growing. We've been changing the way we do things around here, and our new team members each make up an indispensable arm of the new machine. Not only are we taking a more content-centric approach to our development process, but our team now consists of specialists who understand how their part affects the whole -- and how to work together to produce the same seamless, efficient, and user-friendly designs you know and love.
Mike Henderson has proven to be an excellent fit and a hard worker, pumping out wireframes and designs with impeccable precision and attention to detail. Matt Herron is taking on the task of content strategy, including the responsibility of writing this very newsletter you are reading now. Our most recent addition to the team is the charming Jenna Boese, a front-end developer with ten years experience and solid work ethic. If you haven't met the new members, we encourage you to do so by visiting our Team Page.
The work we've been doing with clients this month is absolutely stunning. At one point, Mike, who is still new to the unique level of awesome at which our clients hover continuously, turned to James and asked, "Where do you find these people?!" He was referring, of course, to the dedication and enthusiasm in their projects every one of you have shown and continue to show. We want to thank you for this. It is because of you that we love our jobs and bust our butts day in and day out, and continue to grow the way that we have this summer.
There are big things on the horizon, but it would be premature to show them all off just yet. What we can brag about today is listed below. We have a couple new blog entries to educate yourselves with, and a few designs to admire. Feel free to browse around and see what we've been up to.
As always, we look forward to hearing from you. Fill out our client survey if you haven't yet so we can continue to do things better for you.
The Phuse Team
James, Erik, Mike, Matt, and Jenna
