Welcome to my office

My desk is where I do most of my thinking and creating. I’m a pretty organised person who finds messy and cluttered workspaces incredibly overwhelming - they shut down and reduce my creative focus. I keep only the essentials around me (even though it’s so easy to get carried away with fancy pencils, sticky notes and dark chocolate!).
