How does your working environment look II?

2005 at 01.58 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Today it is about a year ago that we started to have some fun with peeping into people’s offices. I think it would be fun to do this again. Many new people have arrived on this blog since last time and of course things change over time. In my case you’ll see that I don’t use my mirror doors G4 with 22 inch Cinema Display anymore.

I switched to a Dual G5 2.7 GHz machine and a 30 inch Cinema Display. Other things that we added are cabinets in two fun colors and our Xserve G5. I'll start by adding my contribution for this year.

Inside the Duoh! office

It's always nice to get some new ideas from looking into other people's offices and sparkle the re-decorate bug. To contribute all you need to do is:

  • 1. take a picture
  • 2. crop/resize the picture to 420px wide by 315px (prefered height) and save it as jpeg
  • 3. upload the image to your own server (or Flickr, use direct link to the picture)
  • 4. post a comment by using :
  1. <img src="http://www.mysite.com/myimage" alt="image" />

Prepare your camera to flash :-)

My working environment: iBook with a little scrap Nec monitor, Nikon Coolscan IV Ls-40ED on the right, and my negative/positive films on the floor :) An HP 5100 printer on the top, and a radio always on! Cheers from Italy.

The place is like an old tables-based web page: it needs some tidying up! But I’ve somehow managed to find things so far.

Still in school, and haven’t got much money… I’d kill for a 30’ ;) screen. Mine for some reason decreases the gamma, making shadows very dark (which is kinda bad för a designer)

Hey Veerle, where did you get those big, blocy shelves you have hanging on the walls?  I love their simplicity and would love to get some for my home office

Henrik, it sure is!  I did look around and saw some nice things (and cheap, which is why I like Ikea) but couldn’t find those exactly.

@Fuelrock: Henrik is right they are from IKEA but I bought these years ago so I’m not sure if they still make them.

Thanks Veerle.  They did have some shelves that were similar.  A coat of paint would probably do the trick

I am just pleased to see others working on PC as well - any corporate designers here?
