Over the past few weeks, whilst a lot has changed for many of us, at Design Plus, we're doing everything we can to keep spirits high and remain positive. On LinkedIn we've been sharing our top tips whilst working from home. 

Understandably, everyone's situation is different whether you're surrounded by children, pets, or maybe you're one of the lucky ones and you actually get some peace and quiet. This blog is just a bit of fun to help you get to know our dedicated employees working from home throughout these unprecedented and challenging times.
