At Hemispheric Views, we take desk set-ups kind of seriously. Any well-respecting computer user knows that a functioning desk arrangement is key to self-worth. This was so important to us that we created some HVmini episodes to quiz one another on our own desk setups, which you can listen to here:
- 006: HVmini // Battlestations — Martin's Desk;
- 007: HVmini // Battlestations — Andrew's Desk; and
- 008: HVmini // Battlestations — Jason's Desk.
We are so dedicated to desk set-ups that we invited listeners to send in photos of their desks for us to critique. We created focused podcast episodes on each of those:
We've received another submission through our Discord listener forum—open to anybody who listens to the show and wants to open a line of communication with us and other listeners. This time, we thought that we'd make good use of our new blog!
That submission was from Chris. Apparently, he is a fan of the 🐼 colour scheme, as you can see below in his striking photos:
Chris also went so far as to provide details about the key elements of the photo, as follows:
- Wrist Rest;
- Folding Headphone Mount; and
- The water bottle is essential for making sure he drinks enough water during the work day, and the flexible straw is a bonus.
Of course, we have our thoughts and comments about Chris’ desk.
I love the colour coordination here! The black-and-white scheme is very nice indeed. I think what impresses me the most is that even with a collection of products from different companies, Chris has managed to create a sense of consistency and harmony upon his desk. When it comes to audio devices in particular, the presence of a HomePod is most pleasing (as most people would use that either in a lounge room or kitchen) and the microphone and boom arm look pretty cool together. Does the rest of Chris’s house look this professional? Top marks!
Wow, Chris has a full-size running track in his backyard!
That's clearly a cardboard PS5, because we all know they don't really exist in the world.
As a fellow Streamdecker, I respect his privacy in showing the logo only, but I really want to know... what's on his buttons?
Absolutely pristine and serene! Super jealous that he was able to snag a PS5!
Using the best cup! Hydroflask can’t be beat!
An overall kick-ass setup that looks super comfortable with colo(u)r co-ordination that is out of this world!
Don't eat a giant plate of spaghetti at this desk! 🍝 😱
Do you have a desk that you’re proud of? Feel free to share it with us through the aforementioned Discord link or get in touch @HemisphericV on Twitter or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t promise that we’ll feature every single one but we’d love to see how you organise your digital life!
