On My Desk

Katy Atherholt who is the founder of this blog ☻

I developed the studio's brand identity, custom illustrations and website design. We're working together to create a unique, meaningful visual identity for this rising star studio.

MUJI Pens

Once you go MUJI other pens just don't feel right. I'm not even sure if they're the "best" pen but they just feel like the right one. Y'know?

$1.50 ea - MUJI Store

Candles

Essential for staying zen on busy days and adding a little ambiance to any work from home situation. I'm not too picky but my current fave is Teakwood & Tobacco from P.F. Candle Co, an LA-based, female-founded business!

$20 - P.F. Candle Co.

Totebook

Who can resist a nice notebook? After being a Moleskin fan for many years, I started using Studio Neat's Totebook and fell in love. With only 80 pages, they last me about three months of lists, notes, and doodles which makes organizing them a dream.

$20 for 2 - Studio Neat

Plants

Again, it's all about creating that ambiance and calm. I can get through even the most brutal critiques with a happy little plant perched on my desk (or at least I tell myself that). Succulents are tough to kill so I like sticking to those!
