A few weeks ago we found Flickr photos of the offices of Matthew Williams Design. A particular photo caught our attention, a shot of what was happening behind Matthew's desk. The photo had a link to what his office previously looked like and we have to say we like the changes. Above are the before and after. After contacting Matthew we found out the designer had a lot of great finds and resources we thought we should share...
Matthew and his wife, Sharon, moved into their San Francisco studio in 2004. Since they didn't have time to remodel before hitting the grindstone, they made changes along the way. "We're both graphic designers and we were busy with work, so whatever I did couldn't interfere with either of our workloads. In a sense, I had to work backwards -- we moved in, plugged in the computers, and then began working on how the studio should be arranged. I worked in the evenings and on weekends so I wouldn't interfere with business, and I'd tell my wife several days before moving or disconnecting equipment so our work interruptions were minimized."
If there's one thing Matthew and his great studio space have taught us, wait long enough and you can score it for free on Craigslist!
