Working from home is one of the greatest pleasures and luxuries in life &mdash especially when you work in a creative field. What makes working from home so great is that you have the freedom to create your own space &mdash a space that will continually inspire and motive you.
Ryan Katrina aka Neuarmy has one of those inspiring and motivating studios. He's a graphic designer and spending the amount of hours on the computer as he does &mdash you need to be able to stop, look around and be happy in the space you're in. We came across an interview he did for Computerlove today and had to share!
The walls in Ryan's workspace are filled with his own artwork as well as the artwork of his peers and mentors alike. He has them hung much like an old photo darkroom and it gives the space an intimate yet rustic vibe. Even though there is artwork in every square inch of the studio, it's done so well that it doesn't seem too crowded or cluttered.
The furniture is a mix of old and new. Ryan uses old military cabinets side by side new IKEA Alex cabinets. Storage is one of the biggest components for a successful studio when you're in the print business &mdash which is pretty obvious in Ryan's case. We really enjoy the wall to wall bookshelves &mdash great storage capability for easily accessible references.
We actually have a few of his prints hanging in our home! What do you think of Ryan Katrina's work studio?
