Duane Kinsey of Logobird had this great idea: he called out his friends and colleagues in the world of logo and identity design to send him a snapshot of their home office/studio workspaces. Obviously lots of Mac setups were represented, but it is interesting to note how the iMac has become the workhorse for graphic designers in the last few years, when before towers dominated. More below...
Here's a couple more setups, the first belonging to designer Jeremy Bolton, the second is the desk of Leighton Hubbell. Plenty more to admire with larger photos over at Logo and identity designer studio workspaces.
Logobird's roundup inspired us to hunt down a few more graphic designer workspaces we think warrant noting, either for their organization or visual inspiration (since graphic designer's work areas can range from organized chaos or minimalistic):
The home office of FixedShitUp is all about toys for the boys, with DJ gear, stacked screens and plenty of visual inspiration (though his bulletin board is a bit sparse).
Chris Bowler’s standing desk is probably the best looking standing desk setup we've seen; most are quite utilitarian looking, but this setup looks "homey", for the lack of better description.
Bartleme Design's dual monitor setup has everything a designer needs without the clutter. We especially like how the grain of his desk is mirrored by the splash of wall art above the desk. Subtle!
Richard Cloutier of workstationsetups.com seems to be the lovechild of TRON and Darth Vader, at least at night, when the 4 LED light strip kit gives his Dell 24" a futuristic glow.
Jenelle's Home Office is "where the magic happens", as shared over at our Apartment Therapy Philadelphia Flickr pool. Serene and simple and a great use of a narrow work area with affordable IKEA and vintage elements that make her tech a secondary aspect of her workspace.
