Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Giuseppe (Giuse), and I am a 23-year-old design student and photographer.

What’s your favorite item on your desk?

My favorite item is my monitor. A 34” screen is perfect for everything I do: gaming, photo editing, studying, and multitasking.

Any tips for other makers who want to improve their workspaces?

Watch a lot of videos and take an interest in design if you want a nice, modern workspace and setup. Avoid visually cheap mistakes like visible LED dots on walls.

When did you start to work on your desk setup?

I started working on my desk setup in 2018. It began as an RGB rainbow setup and slowly evolved into a more elegant setup with dark and wooden tones.

What's your desk setup aesthetics?

I love a dark, modern aesthetic with natural elements. My wall is grey, some of the furniture and peripherals are black, and some surfaces are oakwood brown. That’s the color palette of my space.

What niche interest are you up to recently?

Anime & Manga, Legos, Gundam model kits, mechanical keyboards, and DIY projects.
