How will you use your space?

At River Studios I plan to set up roughly one half of the space as a workstation for my design business. This includes my desk area with computer, printer, scanner, files, art materials, book case and folders. The other half will contain a table and chairs as a meeting and work area. I plan to use the wall space to hang a pinboard, white board, and artwork. I will attend the studio 9am – 5pm, 5 days a week as my predominant business space.
