Philipa Rabbit is a Portuguese illustrator and designer based in London.
Although as a freelancer I’m always jumping from agency to agency, I do have periods where I work from home so for me it was always important to be able to establish a corner in my flat dedicated to work.
Being a very visual person, I’ve noticed that when I’m in a space that is clean has good natural light, is organised and has beautiful furniture, I immediately feel more inspired to create.
Scandinavian interior design, in particular, has always been inspirational to me.
I’m a big Ikea fan, I love their electric standing desks and I also cannot stress the importance of a good ergonomic chair, they are great for my posture and back health and they are not too expensive.
My favourite apps to use on the iPad are the Procreate and Astropad, I also use the Twelve South ParcSlope aluminum stand for a standard day to day use but also the bamboo GRIMAR stand from Ikea that is great to have a more vertical position to paint.
Overall, I truly believe that since we spend so much time at work, we should make it enjoyable. The work environment affects my state of mind and really plays a big role in my psychological well-being, creativity and ultimately my productivity.
