It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to participate in the weekly challenges, so I thought today would be a good day to get back into the swing of things! Now, I’m not a graphic designer and my artistic ability is limited, but I was happy to see how easy it was to create certain elements – this knowledge might come in handy in the future.
This week’s challenge was to design a flat office space based on your own workspace, and to include an photo of your own desktop.
Well – First, I opened up Storyline 2…because it was released today! Then I sought about designing the elements found in my workspace – white desk, books that I use as a mousepad, mouse, lamp, cork boards and accompanying photos, laptop, and second monitor.
I will say that I sanitized my designed workspace for reduced clutter, but it still ended up looking pretty cluttered…what can I say? I’m a pretty chaotic being and my workspace indicates that – however the work gets done, eh? I also ended up brutalizing my lamp, which is more of an hourglass/teardrop shape. I also veered from the 100% flat aspect of the challenge by incorporating my desktop background and photos posted on my cork boards. When I re-flatify these aspects, I’ll let you know!

And here is the real deal…for comparison sake – again, I realize it’s a bit chaotic. I won’t apologize for it.
