Balazs Szarka's Desk

Hi I’m Balazs and I’m a freelance graphic & web designer. nowadays I’m trying to do more branding projects and travel photography. Every month I update my tumblr page with more free photos.

Can you tell us something about your desk setup?

On my desk I have a MacBook Pro 15” on a custom home-made stand. On the wall I have 22 different variation of the number 2. You can find out more about the project here.

What’s the story behind that desk?

Story behind my desk is realy simple: I just wanted to have a big white desk with lot of space for everything.

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

I like to keep only the really important things for the project I’m currently working on my desk: sketchbook, laptop, tablet, speakers for the music external HDDs for backup, keyboard and sometimes I use a mouse so there is an old but really good Logitech MX1000 mouse. On the left side of the desk I have a small bookshelf plus a few racks for other stuff. On the right side of the desk is just a wall and the window with a view to the garden.

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

I going to sell my 24” iMac and replace it with the MacBook Pro 15” and an external monitor. And maybe one day replace the crappy office chair with something better.

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

The one thing that helps me focus is the white space on my desk.
