Whether you work from home, share a co-working space or work as a designer in a studio, having a comfortable workspace and professional tools is fundamental to fuel your creativity but it also helps to enhance your productivity!

Your workspace should be filled with inspiration and a place that you are excited to spend hours designing in! Team YES all work from home! Here are some snaps of our workstations!

We get a lot of questions about all the tools we use, here is a list of few of the products we use for creative projects!

I hope you found this collection of products useful, don't forget to check out our product reviews tutorials below!

Of course it took years of hard work to collect these products and a lot of trial and error figuring out what’s best to use. You don't need to invest in them all at once when starting out. It is best to get a good computer that works best for you and get into the habit of using a pen tablet (most design studios should provide you with these anyway)!

Most importantly keep learning new skills and practicing daily is way more important to be successful than owning any tools or gadgets!


If you would like to hear more about how to to set up your workspace, why not watch our free course, the Ultimate Guide to Become A Designer. It is slightly dated as it was recorded a few years back, but it is still very useful and relevant!
