7 Clever Copywriters share their desks

Tidy desk, tidy mind?

I’m not sure I entirely believe in the old idiom, my desk is super tidy but my mind? Not so much.

Others argue that work amid a mess of clutter can actually make you more creative.

I asked some of the members of the Clever Copywriting School to share their desks and bravely they sent in their snaps.

(Oh and no meanness about the messy ones – this is a no judgement zone.)

Always start day tidy. Make sure it’s like this before close door at night. Then by end of day there’s likely to be post-it’s everywhere & notebooks open with ideas jotted down for various projects.”
