Oliur Rahman's Desk

If you’re into workspace inspiration you most certainly have stumbled across Oliur Rahman’s blog UltraLinx.

His own workspace is one big inspiration as well. Let’s take a look.

Who are you and what do you do for a living?

I’m a designer and entrepreneur based in South East England and I run my own design and development company where we work across various projects, anything we like the idea of.

Can you tell me something about your desk setup?

My setup is pretty new because I only recently acquired my own studio. Before I used to work from home. It’s why this setup looks so clean and minimalist - I just haven’t had a chance to buy anything yet!

Is there anything you would like to improve on this setup?

I’d probably add another monitor to expand the amount of pixels I have at my disposal. It’s nice being able to have something on a secondary monitor whilst working whether it be some inspiration or even a Netflix TV series.

Do you switch workspaces during your day? If yes, what’s the reason behind it?

I don’t usually switch workspaces. I hate to work on my laptop because I’m so used to the screen estate that comes with a 5K iMac.

Can you tell us something about the items on your desk?

The poster you see on my desk with the quote is something I always live by. It’s something I got printed myself and was my inspiration to start Linx Supply.

What are you doing to stay focused?

I think the main motivator to stay focused is that I know I’m in full control of how much income I bring in every month. If I don’t work, I can’t pay the bills. I have the added benefit of working on my own projects and ideas which makes my work much more enjoyable.

Is there something on your desk which helps you stay focused? What is it?

Probably my poster. Reminds me to keep things simple and work on things as they come.

What was your latest self improvement experiment?

My latest self improvement was probably taking and uploading more photos to Instagram. I love taking photos but just didn’t take enough mainly because I didn’t think my photos were good enough. It looks like my following is proving me wrong.

Where do you see yourself and your desk in the next 5 years?

I’m currently jumping between projects and seeing what takes off so I’m hoping in 5 years I have one solid business that has taken off. But even if all my projects fail I’m still determined to get up and try the next thing.
