After moving house in June of 2018, I thought it would be beneficial to turn one of the rooms into a fully functional office. As a web designer/developer, it’s important that my working environment is comfy, well equipped and suitable to my working style. I’ve collated some photos below of certain key areas of the office, including the equipment and tech I use.
My primary working machine is the Space Grey Macbook Pro, operating with 16GB of RAM – mostly linked up to an external curved monitor (also the reason for its closed lid and the plant hiding the adapters).
I used to be a dual screen monitor kind of guy, but since upgrading to this 4K Ultrawide LG curved monitor, I haven’t looked back. The screen quality and resolution allows for a productive workflow.
Originally using the white Apple Magic Keyboard and Mouse, I switched to the Space Grey versions in the New Year.
I often get in the “zone” with the Apple AirPods with music, but they’re also perfect for calls with clients and partners.
I needed some colour in the room, so a few green plants are well suited for this.
As well as some colour, the walls were genuinely plain anyway, so a few art prints don’t go a miss.
Ergonomics is very important when your job requires you to sit down for a lot of the day, so a high quality and sturdy chair is a must have.
Although rarely used, I have a mini “chill out” area in the corner for a sofa and small side table.
