Home Office Perk No. 3: Sketching Kits

As I prepare to take on more freelance design work and set up my home office, I have been getting things organized and ready for business. Since it’s my own office and design business, I decided to have some fun and make my own home office rules, benefits, perks and incentives.

Home Office Perk No. 3: Sketching Kits

This rule is more of a benefit than a rule. Sketching kits will be provided on the house, and will include:

sketching kit

  • Two different sizes of sketchbooks
  • A mixed-media sketchbook (great for wet media such as watercolor, acrylic, and gouache)
  • Pencils
  • A variety of erasers, and
  • A set of Micron pens
  • A screenprinted tote bag (coming soon) to carry everything in.

I have been doing a lot of illustration projects for commission lately where I have been sketching out my ideas and design compositions first before going digital. These are some of my favorite drawing tools, so this kit will be a nice perk for a graphic design studio.

Some offices have rules like hours, dress code, music, pets, contests and more, so I’m having fun making a list of rules and benefits for my very own office. They are more like concepts to evoke an atmosphere that encourages creativity and individuality. I want the home office to be as creative environment as possible. Stay tuned over the next few weeks for more fun rules!
