Over the last few months in Iso, we’ve been shut off from each other with only a screen to keep us in contact. As a collaborative workspace and close team, Iso hasn’t come without challenges. But it hasn’t been all sad, bad and gloomy. Read on to find out how Phil, Alana, Tom, Kyra and Justin have gotten through Iso without doing anything irreversible to their hair.
