2020 Workspace
December 22nd 2020

I broke out of my minimalist box this year and got a 27” monitor. I’ve always preferred to use my laptop screen when working. Less space forces we to focus and maintains a level of consistency regardless of where I’m working. I can’t deny that the 27” screen is useful though. Especially when working in Figma or Google Sheets.

My current workspace setup:

  • 2019 MacBook Pro 16”
  • Apple Magic Keyboard
  • Apple Magic Touchpad
  • Logitech MX Master 3 for Mac
  • LG Ultrafine 27” Monitor
  • Vitsœ 606 Shelving System with Desk
  • Herman Miller Sayl Chair
  • Awair Air Monitor
  • Apple AirPods Pro
  • Hue Play Light Bar (Mounted behind the monitor)
  • Apple HomePod
  • Bonsai Tree 🌳

I also use an iPad Pro + Apple Pencil for early UI sketches and reading documentation. A well loved Baronfig Confidant serves as a secondary scratchpad to capture thoughts. There’s something satisfying about feeling a Rotring Rapid Pro glide effortlessly across paper that’s holding me back from going purely digital.
