Office/Bureau

Design with precision, develop with imagination.

Established in 2013, Office/Bureau began as a collaboration between partners John Ryan and Jacob Sharrard. John was a seasoned developer with a background in design who had a passion for creating engaging online experiences. Jacob was a designer and photographer with an eye for visuals that tell a story. Over the years the Office/Bureau team has grown to include designers and developers with a range of backgrounds and talents. This diverse range of experiences enables us to bring a unique perspective and unexpected solutions to every project.
