January 2011 is Workspace month on Curbly, where we'll be exploring DIY ideas, organization tips, and design inspiration to make the spaces where we work and express our creativity as amazing as they can be.
Throughout the month of January, we'll be featuring an inspiring office or workspace in a series we're calling "Desk-A-Day". We're starting things off with one my favorite illustrators and designers, Kate Bingaman-Burt. Kate "founded Obsessive Consumption in 2002 and makes work about the stories that our objects tell. Her first book, Obsessive Consumption: What Did You Buy Today?, was published by Princeton Architectural Press in April 2010. She lives in Portland, Oregon, where, along with being an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Portland State University, she also makes piles of work about consumerism: zines! pillows! dresses! drawings! paper chains! photos!"
