Being Europe’s first virtual design office means that most of our team work from wherever they are. In the most part they have a dedicated Home Office to work from, but what if your home doesn’t have a room that has be transformed into an office? What if you have young children that are home all day? Or you suffer from sporadic internet connection?
What options are you left with? Should you pass up the opportunity to work with a leader in innovation? No… & we have the answer to this problem! Deeo utilise the ever growing Co-Working spaces that are springing up all across the UK, Europe & the World. An instant Deeo office location, on your doorstep!
If you haven’t got the luxury of a dedicated Home Office where you can lock yourself away & work, a Co-Working Space is probably for you. This doesn't mean you can’t work from home sometimes – it’s just if you need that ‘place to go’ routine – a co-working space is the way we either provide or suggest our team work from.

Co-working is the use of an office or working environment by people who are either able to work from any location, self-employed or part of a start-up needing to get going without the expense of a dedicated office. Many members of our team working in these work environments & they truly love it!
People don’t want to work in tiny cubicles anymore. Working from home can be great but you may need to GET OUT! – Coffee shops can be distracting. But when you co-work, you have that local place to work & your inspiration goes through the roof. You’re surrounded by a ton of passionate people going for a dream.
