Khalil Ali's Desk

Hello, my name is Khalil Ali. I’m the Creative Director at, an eCommerce company in Tinley Park, IL. We sell all kinds of stuff, and I spend my days taking pictures, using Photoshop, and editing product demo videos.

Can you tell us something about your desk setup?

Not a whole lot of tools of the trade, most of my favorite things are digital tricks and sites I use often. My background is a chrome extension called “Delight” that shows beautiful timelapse videos every time you open a tab. My headphones are 5 years old, they sound great, but the ear cushions were starting to go, so I popped them off and replaced them with another even more comfy pair! You may also notice a dead air fern (aren’t those supposed to be foolproof??)

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

The only thing I’m thinking about getting for organization is a riser with USB ports, I’m always plugging stuff in and my mac is set up kind of far in the back.

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

What helps me stay focused? Hmm… nothing really on my desk - less clutter is usually better for me. I need my headphones and Google Music for some good ambient playlists!

I listen to Glitch Mob, Pretty Lights, and a playlist called “Downtempo Instrumentals” on Google Play really get me focused!
