Mobile technology that allows workers to stay connected, wherever they are
With many companies choosing to operate remotely in the aftermath of the pandemic, combining intermittent office hours with work on the go as well as from home is quickly becoming the new normal.
Lucy & Sam, a small, family-owned children’s fashion brand from south London, is one such company. Their specialty prints, made from soft, sustainably sourced organic cotton, are a breath of fresh air in an otherwise diluted mass production industry.

Rather than investing in costly prime-time TV sales tactics, Lucy & Sam focus on real-world experts – parents – to vouch for their unique clothes.
