Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?

Not really, I do try to focus on stuff that has to be done but some times its impossible to do so. Creatives that work for regular and demanding clients will get the feeling. Thats a serious downside of freelancing though, I’m still working to find that balance. In general, gmail and google keep are my essential tools to keep on track.

What is your routine start and end of the day ?

I wake up early and walk our dog, then I get a triple espresso, going through my e-mails and then work till late. Other than that, I have days committed to print supervising or research (papers, print techniques and samples, etc.) and of course, meetings.
