New Design Studio!!

Hey All,

My design firm just moved into a new loft downtown and I thought I'd share our all new Mac design studio with the forum. When I started this business 5 years ago out of a spare bedroom on a g4 quicksilver with a giant CRT, this was everything I dreamed about and hoped for. It goes to show you with a little hard work and dedication, anything is possible

Wow, very very nice. I love the warehouse (brick walls, high ceilings) look.

Is Chico Web Design your company, or are you an employee?

Congratulations, either way. Looks like a nice environment to work in.

Wow, looks amazing.

At some point I want to start up a studio (recording studio), hopefully it can be this stylish... =]

EDIT: cheat, just noticed you haven't connected any of the monitors or MBPs You want to get some cable 'sock'. Go to a B&O dealer and ask if you can buy a reel of the grey cable sock or cable tidy that comes with their TVs. Works wonders, I'm telling you.

HEH, those are all working computers. We may have done some moving of the wires, but all of those are hooked up to mbp's

Could you list the furniture, I'm especially curious about the one with the good wire management.

That looks like a fantastic place to work. Great setup!

Are those both 30'' ACD's? or is the one beside the MBP a 23''?

They look so sharp in the loft.

Well done!

Looks great. I love the wood/brick look. Only question is where are you actually going to put all your...stuff?
