Weather, Instagram, Gmail – basic to survive
What does your office space look like?
Well, my office space is inside of an old boat factory, that was converted into a creative city. We are about 80 studios, and it looks raw, industrial, with a buzz of creative floating in the air. Inside is messy, relaxed and i have a ping pong table in the middle of it. It helps to stretch your muscles.

I listen a lot of playlists, from dazed and confused, pitchfork, iPslon and Gorilla vs Bear. sometimes i listen radio too. i like to hear people talking when working!
Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
No and yes! I try to make a schedule in the agenda, try to follow it, but sometimes i get lost, or in the internet, or wandering around. i guess is necessary too, but its still something that aim to learn how to do better.
What tips would you give to improve productivity ?
Don’t get lost in internet. I do get lost, so Iam not sure if you should trust me!! Turn of your notifications, plan your next day before. Meanwhile feed yourself with silly stuff outside of the computer. Its good to creativity.

Speaking loud and eat warm lunch
