To do your job well, you need the right equipment. Here’s our edit of the desk essentials and office accessories for every workspace and home office.
Welcome to the world of the accountant, an expert number cruncher who’s reliable, organised and detail-oriented. This diligent professional spends workdays at a desk, collating and analysing financial data. Top of their daily agenda is preparing budgets, reports and tax returns for clients, so accuracy and discretion are key attributes required.
An accountant needs to take good notes during client meetings, so a quality notebook and sticky notes are essential. Other desk essentials include highlighters and foldable clips for annotating reports, a business card holder for networking opportunities and a smartphone with a power bank charger for staying connected.
She’s creative and tech-savvy with a flair for communication in all its forms. This marketing maestro is flexible and motivated, and just as happy working on-the-go in a studio or café as she is at her desk. Her role requires a finger on the pulse when it comes to pop culture, trends and the media, so she’s always online and plugged in.
When creating content on the fly you need a well-stocked stash of tools to lock down those creative ideas – pens, notebooks, sticky notes, correction fluid, scissors and washi tape. Other workspace essentials for a social media guru on the go? A water bottle for keeping hydrated (double-walled is best), quality binders and document holders for storing important paperwork and a calculator for quick sums regarding targets and budgets.
Artistic and original, this cool creative is ready to transform a space into something special. At her desk, she dedicates her time to researching the latest trends and sketching designs. Always on the lookout for inspiration, she’s a collector and a curator and regularly works on collages and mood boards to help hone her creative vision.
For designers working on the human form, a mini manikin is a welcome addition to the kit. Other design and desk essentials include push pins for setting up a mood board, watercolour paints and pads of paper for ideation and to-do lists and planner pads for organising and scheduling.
Step into the office of the landscaper, an energetic worker bee who is always on the go. When he’s not at a job, out toiling in the elements, he’s at his desk, contacting clients and suppliers or working on accounts. This role requires physical strength, stamina and precision, as well as an ability to create detailed plans. A working knowledge of plants and an eye for design are also crucial.
When your office is the great outdoors, you need to stock up on the essentials: sunscreen, insect repellent and a sturdy water bottle. A landscaper’s kit should also include a clipboard and pens for taking notes on site, display folders for showing off plans and all the gear and gadgets that help make physical labour more efficient (we’re looking at you, leather gloves and sweatproof earphones!).
