Kaeli Justus is a graphic designer from Cape Town who has an ongoing series called The Desk Project, where she illustrates the workspaces of friends, acquaintances and people she admires from a distance. my desk next please, Kaeli?
The thought came from a piece by Jessica Hische which stated “I like my desk messy & my whiskey neat“…it got me thinking because I like both pretty neat. I wondered if people’s workspaces reflected anything about themselves or if they were just desks – to that end I’ve included their occupation as well as a link to their work where possible. Below are the vector illustration versions of the desks I was sent. Through their simplification & their vectorisation I’ve found they all land up looking pretty neat.
