Imagine that you have a nice, tidy place where you can do all of your art and design work. Maybe your “studio” consists of nothing more than a kitchen table or a desk with some shelves. We have found that “organisation” is crucial to the productivity and satisfaction of our creative clients.
And this doesn’t imply a lack of tidiness either… It’s more about finding your own rhythm and establishing a routine that works for you.
Keeping a few things in mind, here…
You should always remember your goal. Make sure you keep your goals in mind while you plan the layout of your studio, no matter how big or little it is. Your goal, hopefully, is to produce something. It’s important to keep in mind that you’re creating this room for your own personal use.
Create a simple system for getting what you need. There may be some materials or things that you don’t require every time you create, but there will also be materials that you need often. Ensure that these resources are easily accessible to you. You can avoid wasting time and energy looking for them later on.
Maintain a clutter-free studio or creative space. When we first get started, it’s unrealistic to expect to have a permanent studio. One customer, in particular, was known to have used her dining room as her creative space. It seemed like every available surface and shelf was crammed with clutter. She also had a habit of frequently taking over the family room. If you have a defined spot to work, you remove a potential block to your imagination. Make it a top priority, even if your living quarters are quite constrained, to maintain at least a little bit of open, clutter-free space in which to start and complete projects. Set aside some space specifically for your work. That’s because you’ve earned it.
Make your workspace more like you. Even if your space is neat and tidy, if it doesn’t serve as your personal creative sanctuary, you won’t be motivated to work there. Put your own spin on it; it will mean more to you that way. Place calming and motivating objects in the creative space.
