Your workstation is an intricate ecosystem of order or chaos that enables you to make something new from raw material. From powerful software and precision tools to specialized gear and multi-monitor setups, digital creativity requires efficiency, flexibility, and of course, a lot of inspiration. Students at The Art Institutes discover the tools and processes that support their individual workflows, and they begin to develop the unique environments in which they do their best work. We’ve asked Ai students and alumni to share their original workstations—from the high-tech tools to the quirky totems that bring inspiration to the daily grind.
