I designed my office to be as unobtrusive as possible, to be an uncluttered work space, a guest house that keeps 'em coming back, and an inspired meditation room. It has a green roof so when we see the structure from the house it fits into the forest.
When I started as a graphic designer back in the early 90s the equipment we used necessitated a much larger space. The first system for the business was a Mac Ci, then it was one tower after another, light tables, laser printers, scanners, backup drives, and all that. A few years ago I realized that my laptop and iPhone were all I really needed to run my end of our customer experience consultancy. I could give up my big office and work within a small cube...a cube with a view.
