060 - Brandon Jacoby

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. ☕️

I also have exciting personal news to share!

As part of my work at Journal I will also be helping with their online community focused around supporting startup founders and creators. I’d love to be able to chat with you there in realtime as I curate the Workspaces newsletter each week.

If you’re interested in following along in realtime, seeing my inspiration, suggesting new workspaces, getting equipment/software suggestions… join the growing community here! (we will be chatting in the #workspaces channel. Come say hi!) 🎉

Brandon Jacoby is currently the Head of Product & Design at Party Round. Party Round describes itself as “Invest in Friends” and “A better way to raise your first $500k”.

Prior to his role at Party Round, he was a Design Lead at Cash App. 💸

Inside Brandon’s Workspace


  • 16” MacBook Pro

  • Dell 27” 4K Monitor

  • Apple Magic Trackpad

  • Apple Magic Keyboard

  • HAY Lamp

  • SONOS Speakers

Brandon tries to keep his technical usage to a minimum for my workspace. He has learned that he performs best with a setup that maximizes focus over “productivity” — Optimizing for the latter often has quite the opposite effect for him.

Be sure to give Brandon a follow on Twitter to follow along as he helps grow Party Round: twitter.com/JacobyBrandon 🎉
