My Bag Contents Featured on Design O’Blog


Today, a photo of the contents of my bag (well, rucksack) appeared on Niki Brown’s Design O’Blog, in an article entitled “It’s All In The (Designer’s) Bag Part 2“. The beginning of the article reads:

This is the second edition its all in the (designer’s) bag! Check out the original post over here –> Graphic Designer’s Bags Part 1.

Now, we all know that designers are cool. They generally dress well, and have a good sense of style. I’ve also noticed that they tend to have cool bags – but what is inside of those bags? I know you are dying to know!! I asked several designers to snag a pic of what they carry around with them on a daily basis.

I was originally contacted by Niki and asked if I wanted to take part in this amusing exercise to take a peek into designer’s bags. My photo (shown below) shows what I generally carry around when I’m out and about (with the actual numbered descriptions in the actual Design O’Blog article):


I recommend this post, it’s a great read—and includes the innards of the bags of fellow designers, Chris Spooner, Franz Jeitz and Jon Phillips, to name but a few. If you haven’t already done so, why don’t you check it out on Design O’Blog—it’s a fascinating read 🙂

    Nice insight, Andrew. In for a penny, in for a pound. 😉

    Loved browsing through all the different bags. Great idea from Niki.

    @ David

    Yeah, it was quite an interesting read. It’s amazing to see that many designer’s carry around the same type of stuff, too.

    Yeah, lol. I liked the Rubicks cube. Might get myself one of those bad boys…
