What is the most useful item in your workspace?
One of the most useful items in my workspace is my central monitor. It helps me concentrate and see in real-time what I'm working on, while having other content on the sides to help me make the best decisions.
How do you spark creativity?
Something I like to do is to think about the good things that have come my way in life and feel grateful for them. After that, I like to review existing trends in the design world and think about how this can help us create better products.
What do you think is the main benefit of remote work?
Remote work is one of the best gifts life has to offer. For me, remote work helps you a lot to keep your mental health calm and also to have the opportunity to spend much more time with your family. Also, remote work allows you to work from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection, which allows you to increase your productivity much more.
I have to mention that remote work is not for everyone, there are those who prefer to spend days at the office to be with other people, and there are those who prefer to spend more time alone to enjoy and exploit their skills creating products.
As long as you feel comfortable regardless of the modality you choose.
