034 - Ariel Norling

Welcome to another edition of Workspaces! We bring you inside the workspaces of creative individuals. Workspaces hopes to inspire you by showing you the toolkit that many creatives use to do their daily work. ☕️

Ariel Norling is currently a designer at Murmur. She also writes a weekly newsletter called I Know a Spot where she highlights active houses for sale that she finds inspiring. And just in case she wasn’t busy enough, she’s also writing a book about tech culture and burnout.

Her workspace is sort of an “everything space” where she works on her book and newsletter, works out, and also paints.
