Customising a desk organizer
Do you remember our recent post on Chato Aganza’s Moleskin wallet hack? As art director for Surfing Mag, it’s kinda Chato’s job to flip crew out, so we thought it would be fun to show his binder/desk organizer. It’s perhaps not quite as refined as a Hermes, but it still carries a certain charm…
Good carry lets you be as comfortable on the road as you are at home, no matter where you are roaming.
Good customizing helps you find a place for even your weirdest items. This letter opener is certainly qualifying for the weird bit.
If one is good, more is better. The staple equivalent of a bar tack.
Elastic can be flicked when boredom threatens.
Chato has shown incredible constraint in not doodling over the bar code.
‘Drink Cool’ feels like a pretty good mantra out of all this. However I feel like we should leave you with a more profound art quote. Unable to find one of those, we’ll leave you with a faux-profound quote, dressed up to sound much wiser than we are:
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” ~Scott Adams
