Your workspace should be inspiring, but it should also be neat and tidy for the sake of getting things done.
For me, it’s a space that I see pretty much every day, so I find it important to keep it visually stimulating rather than overwhelming. This means you’ve got to be on top of reducing your clutter – don’t be afraid to put things away. No matter if you are a creative or a numbers person, it’s a sure thing that having your work laid out in a neat space will keep your mind thinking clearly and your actions will reap the benefits from that.
In my design studio, I have a mood wall that constantly changes with inspiration that I collect on my travels. It is designated to an area that sometimes grows into a beautiful monster of paper that I am constantly revisiting to strip back and start again. It’s all part of the process and the act of revisiting and reinventing is something I value as a tool for growth. I say, we can never move forward without looking back.
So with the New Year, I revisited my workspace and took away the confusing clutter. It’s where I create, and where I am inspired, so here are some of my favourite things that right now keep me ticking, until the next overhaul.
