Ken's Mobile Minimal Workstation

Ken's Mobile Minimal Workstation

Minimal workstations are something that most people yearn for. Ken's workspace is quite fetching, since it's got everything you need to design things and create stuff. We like the overall low profile, but it doesn't skimp on the tech, which is important when you do a lot of work from home.

Ken loves photography, and he also loves his tech. The technology he uses reflects his need to be mobile with his gear, like most photo enthusiasts. The fact that his workstation also doesn't take up much space is another benefit. His desk is large enough to support a multi-monitor setup, but since he uses his MacBook Pro to do his work, he's fine with only one monitor.

For his mobile gear, he created some DIY felt cases, which work well. Having a second smaller MacBook is perfect to cut down on the weight when you're traveling. He customized his keyboard to be all matte black, which is unusual, but it does look good and if he touch-types, it's not much of an issue. We really like how clean his workstation looks. While it will most likely get cluttered from time to time, if you're diligent enough, you'll be able to keep yours like his.

His furniture is from IKEA and it complements his setup nicely. His walls are decorated with CD cases. All in all, it's a sweet setup that a lot of people would like to have.
