30 Home Office Ideas to Spice Up Your Creativity

What is wonderful about technology is that it enables you to work remotely. If you happen to travel or live in a different city, you can still work from your very own house. Especially if you cannot commute to work all the time, we recommend that you dissociate between your working and rest area. It is true that not everyone’s career path requires a home office. But for those who do, especially freelancers, artists, and writers, a separate area is crucial to productivity. Simply put, you should separate the workspace from the rest of the house lest you procrastinate. Working from your bed, amazing as it may sound, will do you great damage in the long run.

The home office should be an aesthetically-pleasing, comfortable, and ergonomic setting where you can work without distractions. Since it is YOUR workspace, it has to reflect your own style and taste. First of all, make sure your bedroom is not your office. If your place is too cramped, throw away stuff that you know you will never ever use. If you simply do not have the necessary space, try to at least set up a room divider. Second of all, make sure you find your office area productive and ergonomic.Are you bored with a space of your home office? Then scroll down and enjoy this collection of 30 beautiful home office ideas you can implement to your own home interior.

30 Creative Invoice Designs You Would Love to Send Yourself

Are you a freelancer offering services? Or maybe a small business owner selling products? Then you might know that invoices are crucial to your business. They are great for record-keeping, especially your income and spendings. In short, the invoice is an invaluable tool for accounting. Surely, invoices differ from one country to another. But they are a fiscal necessity. An invoice contains specific information, such as:

  • the date;
  • purchase order number;
  • product description;
  • the total amount spent;
  • quantities;
  • the value added tax;
  • your cut.

Usually, the invoice is plain, simple, printed on recycled paper. Some may even have a logo. Nevertheless, artists and bookkeepers alike have to send monthly invoices to their clients. So, think about it. Why not take invoices as an opportunity for branding? Nothing proves trust and professionalism than a great invoice template. Even if you consider a black and white design, make it creative. After all, it’s great for self-promotion and corporate identity.

To illustrate our point, we have put together 30 creative invoice designs. Hopefully, these will serve as inspiration for your own invoice template:

31 Creative and Fun Illustrated Avatars

Lately, the Internet has been full of social media websites and gaming platforms, where people communicate on a daily basis. So, what if you dislike using photographs for online profiles? We might have the perfect solution for you.

Illustrated Avatars!

Remember the good old days when creating an avatar from AOL was everyone’s favorite pastime? Not really… That’s because AOL reigned a century ago. But even so, avatars are not completely outdated.

So, why not use a goofy avatar for your gaming persona? You might think that those auto-generated avatars are horrible. That’s why, we want to talk about illustrated avatars. A well-drawn avatar that resembles you physically can also show your fun personality. Also, avatars can even replace all those selfies that just cannot do justice to your creative mind. An avatar for your very own portfolio can also exhibit a sense of artistry.

Well, some people take themselves too seriously. But there are artists who have managed to create illustrated avatars to showcase their creative skills and show off their personality. And by doing so, they have caught our attention. Therefore, we have put together the best and most creative and fun illustrated avatars for your inspiration:
