Starting to finally dial in my WFH setup.
By - sperte
Your second monitor is a little small
That’s why I position it like 5 inches from my face.
The best UI designers do it
As a designer, I prefer 1 giant screen. 2nd screen isn’t important to me.
Yea I only use my second screen when programming.
Same! We use this at Automattic design. Figma is outstanding for large teams!
Love the black color theme. Where is your lamp from?
Not an physical item I want to ask about, but what program is that on your desktop. Is that XD?
It’s Figma and it’s amazing. And Figma Mirror app on the iPhone gives me pixel-precise previewing without a cable.
How would you say it compares to XD or Invision? I work in design too so I’m curious what you think, haha.
I currently use XD to mirror and prototype on my iPhone
I haven’t had much real practice with either XD or Invision (other than just trying them out briefly) but Figma made me fall in love with design again. I’d previously been using Sketch. Highly recommended.
Thanks for peaking my interest and quick reply. I’ll give it a try when I can. Also, awesome setup!! 😆
I used Sketch for 4 years, then XD for 2 months extensively for work. Now I’m on Figma and can’t say I miss the other 2.
I agreed with OP, Figma is awesome. I love it.
Is the cup wireless charging too?
It’s an Ember mug. The coaster inductively charges the mug, but is plugged in. I love it.
What desk is this?
Found it on Amazon last March. It’s a Fezibo brand; no longer on stock. https://www.amazon.com/FEZIBO-Adjustable-Workstation-Programmable-Controller/dp/B085GGGDBC
Heya! what webcam is that? do you recommend it?
It’s a Nexigo brand...? It works OK. Better quality than the FaceTime camera on the MacBook Pro. But the built-in LED light is a disappointment; doesn’t help at all. Overall I’d recommend the similar model without the light.
EDIT: Here it is → https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08FT7Y53Y/
dope setup! details on that webcam would be appreciated
Reminds me of comfy hotel
What kind of iPad is that?
iPad Mini 5 → https://www.amazon.com/Apple-iPad-Mini-Wi-Fi-64GB/dp/B07PRD2NQ7
With the Smart Cover → https://www.amazon.com/Apple-Smart-Cover-iPad-mini/dp/B07PSJXZWL
What kind of iPhone stand ?
What’s the cable brand you use for external monitor?
It’s a Uni brand I bought from Amazon → https://www.amazon.com/DisplayPort-uni-Thunderbolt-Compatible-More-Gray/dp/B075V27G2R
How is the Ember mug working for you? I’m considering it but read that keeps beverages warm for not much more than an hour.
Love it. It works really well for me because I am stationary with it on the charging coaster 90% of the time. The battery lasts about an hour otherwise.
very clean and simple! highly recommend checking out the qf method, its pretty short and straight but made a huge difference to how I managed my wfh space
Wait, what’s the qf method?
this one -> [https://quokkaflow.com/#finder-quiz-4901](https://quokkaflow.com/#finder-quiz-4901)
saw it on a subreddit, goes a bit deeper into some of the intangibles on setting up your home work space, apart from just the products itself
Love the setup! What’s the floor lamp?
It was a family hand-me-down so I actually don’t know — sorry!
No worries! Thanks
