1. Miguel Camacho — Andalusia, Spain

2. Cami Dobrin — Lisbon, Portugal

3. Marisol Ortega — Seattle, Washington

"The wall next to my desk is my moodboard. I add or remove things as my mood changes, or if I’m working on something bigger to keep me in the right headspace. I also have my desk set up so I can do things analog (paint, ink, or linocut), with the scanner under my desk and work on the computer." — Marisol Ortega

4. Lilla Bardenova — London, United Kingdom

"I live in a small studio so I keep things organized and functional. I’ve got my drawing materials at hand, and I have a desk that perfectly fits my iPad, laptop, a cup of tea, and my tiny self. It’s not about the space or the tools—it’s all about good habits and balance.” —  Lilla Bardenova

5. Scott Fuller — Atlanta, Georgia

“My space isn’t big—maybe 10x11 square feet, but I pack a ton of stuff in there! The crazy thing is, there’s a story behind each and every piece of junk, stuff, or paraphernalia on my desk. Each piece speaks to a different era of design—of life, really. It’s so much fun dissecting the little tricks that each design seems to hide.” — Scott Fuller

6. Diana Traykov — Sofia, Bulgaria

“I don’t need a super zen arrangement of elements to get that creative juice flowing. I really like looking at plants and taking care of them. I started collecting some cool looking vinyls from the Soviet Bloc, which are an easy find in Bulgaria. The one in the picture above has an awesome color combo and typography on it.” — Diana Traykov

7. Kath Nash — Greenpoint, Brooklyn

“When I work on freelance projects, I work from my home studio in Greenpoint. I love that space so much. It’s airy and bright. I keep it full of plants, art, books, and random little things that make me happy, like a Ketnipz Bean plushie.” — Kath Nash

8. Scott Biersack — Phoenix, Arizona

“The home office consists of a little bit of everything I love. Action figures, everything Nintendo related, video games, inspiring artwork from friends, and of course, natural light! Personally, I knew I needed an inspiring yet effective space to get my work done.” — Scott Biersack

9. Chloe Jackson — Bristol, United Kingdom

“My home studio is a bright and airy space full of artwork, books, and trinkets that I’ve collected from my travels. I have a lot of plants and love looking after them as it gets me away from my computer. There’s also a park close by so I always hear the birds first thing in the morning. It’s a nice way to start the day.”— Chloe Jackson

10. Radostina Georgieva — Sofia, Bulgaria

“My desk is big enough to fit everything I need: a bunch of paper & pencils, my tablet & laptop, my plants, and even some of my Kinder egg toys. The wall above my desk is filled with work in progress, sketches, and posters. It might seem a bit cluttered at first, but it makes the space feel cozier & helps me get into play mode.” — Radostina Georgieva
