Featured Workspace: Sergio Molina

 17   Tweet

This must be the busiest workspace we’ve featured so far. I guess we could call it “The Blackboard Workspace”. It looks dark and creative, and I like it.

Sergio has thoroughly labeled just about every piece of hardware—click on each image to check it out on Flickr if you’re interested. The main devices include a 42″ Panasonic monitor, a 15″ HP Envy laptop, a Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse, a Microsoft Sidewinder x4 keyboard, a Griffin PowerMate and a HP w2207h portrait monitor in portrait mode.

This is pretty chaotic but it makes perfect sense to me.

It’s easier for me to remember things when I write them on the wall. I test myself on typography terms, I write a lot of design/program notes, messages, quotes, and just notes in general. I use up a lot of chalk.


I have a laptop which I use mostly for school but also for photography and rendering.

Side note: I actually won that laptop seen above (HP Envy 15″). You can view my video entry here.

I’m a graphic/motion designer, compositor, and photographer. God only knows how much time I’ve spent sitting at this spot.

  • Originally I had a wireless (diNovo Edge) keyboard and (Sidewinder x8) mouse but they recently died out on me.
  • The monitor on the right constantly changes from landscape to portrait mode depending on what I’m working on. I love having that option.
  • On the right top corner I have 3 WD hard drives which add up to about 4TB’s. I’m paranoid =D
  • I have a lot of huge storyboards that I work on which aren’t displayed, they’re stored on the right side of the desk.

What do you think of Sergio’s workspace?

    Hey guys! Thanks for featuring it! Glad you enjoy it :D

    As a side note:
    I use the Panasonic flat screen to mirror my main monitor when showing clients the progress in their work, this way I don’t have to sit at an angle and have everyone crowd one monitor.

    I’m considering hanging it above my current monitors but i’m not sure if I trust any wall mounts to hold that amount of weight, especially considering I’d have a lot of expensive gadgets below it @_@

    Great blog post. However, I heard that the Microsoft Arc Touch is a better product than the Microsoft Arc Mouse. What do you think?

      I have the Arc Touch but I also have the original Arc mouse, both are great really, I use them for my laptop since I constantly take it from place to place.
      The Arc Touch takes the cake though, the touch strip in the middle is fantastic and the ergonomics of the mouse itself suit my hand perfectly!
