I think my dad told me once that clean desk is a sign of someone who doesn’t have enough to do. Due to recent tumultuous life events and a simultaneous upswing in projects at work, my desk recently reached a truly epic point of chaos. I’m pretty sure it was about to buckle under the weight of paper samples and discarded starbucks containers.

This got me contemplating the desk of the creative professional – organized vs messy vs waayyy mac-geeked out (I wish I fell into the last category, but sadly I’m still on a piece-of-shit dell). Not surprisingly there’s a blog dedicated to the subject that makes for a pretty good read. Although they sure look a lot cleaner than my desk.
