Everyone needs an inspiring place to work in.
At my faculty students get a work space to work on their projects. Before even really thinking about my project, I always make it a priority to make my space a nice place to work in. If I’m going to spend whole days working there, expecting my brain to come up with creative ideas, it better be a nice environment.
I truly believe that if you make yourself at home somewhere and put some effort in making the space around you communicate how you want to feel, it will affect your work in every way. As I do design work and creativity is a big deal to my process, I can’t even imagine having it otherwise. But I believe that whatever job you do, you deserve a space that makes you feel motivated and comfortable.
My semester started again. Meaning I got out my polka dotted table cloth and super-effective post-it to do board (it helps me to actually concretize my activities at the beginning of the day and get them done), I bought a plant, I printed out over 50 quotes on play and hung them around the space (the domain I work in is centered around designing for play), got some fancy design prints and made an instant inspiration wall (read: a hanging marker and taped paper on the wall so I can start writing my wild ideas on the wall any time I feel like it). I might even have put a mini-fridge behind my storage cabinet (psst, don’t tell).
Some people giggle when they see me running around with flowers and polka dots on my 3 hour work spot transformation. I giggle when I know I have the most inspiring little spot of my space.
I might not yet have started on my planning. But hey. I will have an excellent space to work on that tomorrow.
