We've been thinking a lot about the state of our workspaces recently (see here and here for a start) while we get organized and get a system going. So it was fitting that we came across the Wallpaper* Desk Job Project. For two years the back page of Wallpaper* has investigated, albeit in a fantasy kind of way, the desks of iconic individuals who intrigue them. From Tartan wallpaper to a minimalist setup, can you guess who the magazine had in mind for each of these desktops? Answers under the cut:
