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.
Because my work is mostly digital, I use a 15 inch MacBook Pro and a 12.9 inch iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil.
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.
