Productive Procrastination, Curated by Friday Slack Off

Catchy content and daring design inspires our work here at Staffing Robot. Check out these top websites, articles, and brands that caught our attention in this week’s Friday Slack Off.

Quick recap: Slack is a communication tool we’ve been using in our office to try and curb the amount of email we send. It’s sort of like a chatroom with different channels that you can choose – for instance we have a channel where we drop awesome web design stuff. You can ping people individually, or just drop something in there for people to check out in their own time.

It’s an awesome tool, and it’s pretty fun, too. Which is what the Friday Slack Off is – we share with you some of the stuff we’ve been talking about in Slack.
