10 Amazing Gadgets for Designers

There are many times where we take a peek at designers’ desks and wonder what those tech-savvy stuffs are.

Some designers prefer their work space clean and minimal, while some prefer it in their own state. No matter how you arrange your space, we found 10 really cool gadgets for you.

Not only it fits stylishly but they are also practical. If you are a designer, let’s make you a super cool one!

1. Polaroid

Do you realize that things from the past eras are coming back as a trend? Come on! Back then it was cool but now it is way cooler! We are not talking about basic Polaroid camera here. You can edit and save pictures from the memory card too!

Yes, we are talking about shutter device that fits the old and young.

2. Beat Block
BeatBlock Speaker

It could be the new album release from your favorite band or just browsing through Internet radio. Unless you are having a phone or online conversation, sharing is caring. Tune up your workplace with this most durable portable speaker and share the goodness with other designers.

Keep an eye out for version 2; higher volume, better bass response and rain proof. Bam!

3. Tank Up Coffee Mug
Tank Up Coffee Mug - Fred & Friends

Alright, this is not exactly an electronic gadget or anything of a complicated mechanic. But we are pretty sure that we cannot overlook an awesome mug from a designer’s table. For us, the mug is equally important as the caffeine fuel! With the heat-sensitive printing, you will know when to brew another fresh pot of coffee.

Yay to never sipping from an empty cup again!

4. Snooze Alarm
Snooze iPhone Alarm Dock - Distilunion

Instead of accidentally dismissing your iPhone alarm (familiar?), you can snooze your Snooze iPhone Alarm Dock or quiet down incoming phone calls easily with a sleepy-slap. With the snooze-function rubber top and non-slip bottom, Snooze can stylishly fit your bedside table or work desk; a hero indeed when it comes to our power nap.

5. TIC TAC TOE Pencil Holder
Tic Tac Toe Pencil Holder - 24Dientes

We love neat and minimal work space; even better if we could have bit of fun. Old classic games are hard to die especially when it’s part of your desk! Let’s say when your creative director comes over to your table to check on your work, don’t let him/her walk away just like that. Have a game ready and take a fun break!

6. Empty Memory USB
Empty Memory USB - Logical Art

Just like the name, we are quite speechless. Each design contains a physical emptiness in its sculptural form, giving the metaphor that you can fill the space with your own memory.Love the simple and minimal jewellery design of this. Transferring files has never been so cool. Designer approves!

7. Luckey Chalkboard
Peel And Stick Chalkboard Wall Decal - The Luckey

Admit it. We have forgotten few due dates. That is why memo pads and notice boards are here to help. Luckey Chalkboard is the same but better with their peel & stick board function! Bring it to your desk, conference room or put it up at the chill room for brainstorming sessions.

8. Lazerwood Keys for MacBook Pro
Lazerwood Keys for MacBook Pro - Lazerwood Industries

If you want to be an Apple enthusiast (or already is one), go all the way. Some like their Macbook keyboard plain and sleek, while we adore the wood details that remind us a fragment of nature; trails of clear dews along vines and the smell of autumn’s bark.

9. Jelly USB Charger
Jelly USB Charger - The Coop Idea

When we have multiple software open, plus countless of tabs running in the browser; we do not want anything else to drain our computer power. And that is what Jelly USB Charger is for!
You will not believe it when this 5.1A charger of just a coffee mug size can charge 1x tablet and 3x smart phones at maximum speed; that feel-good feeling where all your devices battery are FULL.

10. Wacom Inkling
Inkling - Wacom

When we have marvelous ideas, most likely we scribble and sketch it down. But what happens when we need a digital copy of those sketches?
Hence the very reason we adore Inkling as with Inkling, it enable us to capture our sketches digitally, stroke by stroke. At the end of the day, not only will you have the digital copy, but in layers of vector or raster form for us, Adobe junkie!
