This is my free-time setup: gaming mouse and mouse pad, wifi headset good also for movies with my faithful Air in the background. On the side there are a few of empty bottles of whisky (which i kind of collect) plus the one i’m currently drinking from time to time.

Reader Andrea De la Torre from Chicago, IL shares his desk with us.

Here is my desk, the place where I dream and create. My favorite way to design is listening to jazz or house music. When I have an idea I write it on a post it note and stick it on the wall, it is filled with new project ideas, and goals. I am a graphic designer, so most of what I do at my desk is design. But one of my greatest passions in life is traveling, so I do a lot of my travel planning here too. I move a lot so I’ve been through a lot of desks, but every time I strive to create a space that feels organized, unique, and inspiring. It wouldn’t be my desk without my post its, my lamp, my vintage calendar, and some of my designs or photographs. 
List of items:
Foldable chair with blue cushion from Ikea
Vintage Calendar from Guanajuato, Mexico
Wooden Desk
Black Desk Lamp from Office Max
Black Boxes from Ikea
#6 sign from Chicago blue line
Poster designed by me
Photograph on clip board taken by me
Set of rulers, angles and french curves designed by Sky White
