What does your office space look like?
At work it can really depend on the time of day and how busy I am, but rarely uncluttered. When doing my Illustrations it is usually wherever I can set my laptop up, but usually a dark space.

What kind of music do you listen when you are working ?
When Illustrating I don't really listen to music, I like to put on a movie or TV series for background noise.

Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
It is usually about assessing priorities, most of the time in my head, but if there are too many things to do it is always good to do a list.

What tips would you give to improve productivity ?
Coffee (double shot if possible), focus, avoid distractions.

You're better than your colleagues to :
Work fast, solve problems, show creativity.

What is the best advice anyone has given you ?
Switch your mind off from work when you go home.

What is your best tip for saving time ?
With my design work it is about getting as much information as you can at the start, this minimises things down the road. With my drawings I would love to save time, but everything takes longer than I think it will.

What is your routine start and end of the day ?
I try to get in early so there are less distractions, make a coffee and check my emails. At the end of the day I usually have a long drive home, I use this time to switch off from work.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go ?
A sketchbook beside my bed, some of my best drawing ideas have come just as I am falling to sleep. If I don't write them down or do a quick sketch I can't get to sleep.
