Who are you :
I’m a multidisciplinary art director and motion designer.
Your current job :
I’m self-employed at the studio I founded, Pusher.
In which city are you located?
A word to define what kind of worker you are:
What tools are essential to your life (app, software, etc.)?
The whole Adobe CC Suite, Mail & Apple Music.
What does your office space look like?
A pretty motivating collaborative space named the “1111” where small studios and freelancers exchange work, tips and skills with a pretty inspiring view.
What kind of music do you listen when you are working?
Usually hip-hop and old soul. Also piano ballads for the stressful stretches.
Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work?
I always write down a checklist of around 4 to 7 things I need to do during the day, usually starting with the most important stuff. I check in black the completed ones, in blue the ones in progress and in red the ones I couldn’t do. Then I exactly know where I’m at the next morning.
What tips would you give to improve productivity?
That checklist routine made me much more productive. One other thing that really helps me is a flag system in Mail. I order incoming emails with different categories (important, studio, bills, etc.) so I can prioritize them. Also, do sports during lunch time if possible.
