How Creatives Work and The Future of Desks

If you can’t see the video above, please click on this link.
Check out this great little video, by Aaron Trinder, on how designers or creative people work within a space and how this may impact how we design desks in the future. Some food for thought?

Suitably inspired, I though I might also share my space at home with you. It’s mid way between clean and cluttered. I’m a working pile kind of person as you can see with the stacks of mail, books I’m reading and a sketchbook etc. on the right. Up top (not in the picture) we have two shelves of books. I’ve got a broadband modem, jacked into my laptops for maximum speed, seated next to a bank of power plugs. I’ve also got a bag of munchies for my late night cravings. Yes it’s 12.13am here.

    I think the personal work space for a creative is extremely important. Everyone has their own personal energy flow they like to feel and if that doesn’t exist the creative process will not flow how it should. I know this from being around creative people and also being one as well.

    That is a great video. The way we work is constantly changing. In order to keep the creative mind sharp, your environment has to allow change and interaction. We currently use HUM desking stations from Kimball Office (http://www.humoffice.com) and really like the atmosphere it creates. Herman Miller also has a similar product line that is worth considering (http://www.hermanmiller.com/Products/Sense-Desking-System). Thanks for sharing!

      @Brad: That is actually a screen saver.
      @Neilson: Yes I’m using Rhino3D Beta for the Mac.
