Coffee shop office?
Our design studio is located in Hoxton and it is a great environment to work in. However going to work every day, in the same room, at the same desk, with same people, in the same atmosphere, simply doesn't create a place which exudes creativity.
So to counter this we only work from the studio 3 days a week. 1 day we work from home, either all at someones house, or in our own homes. And the other day we pick a coffee shop and work from there. This not only changes things up making the week feel shorter and more varied, but it brings us closer together as a team and definitely helps us produce our best work.
A change of environment and scenery stimulates new thoughts, allowing us to make new connections which usually leads to great ideas. And having a constant background natter with coffee shop music actually makes it easier to concentrate.
The best bonus is eating great food, cake and coffee throughout the day! Even though our other halves probably won't appreciate how unhealthy this is!
