The following article is a part of our Deskscape Series. Many of us spend up to eight or nine hours at our desks per day, making our “deskscapes” a creative reflection of the book publicity work we do for our clients every day.
Publicist Nicole Martineau shares some of her favorite parts of her deskscape:
I’m a huge pop culture nerd and a cat lady, and I think my current work space reflects a little bit of each. A former co-worker gifted the Playbill calendar and cat mug to me, which fit in perfectly with the cat cards I already had tacked up on my wall.
Anyone who has ever worked with radio stations knows that a time zone map is a very handy thing to have around. The problem is, it’s a little boring to look at tacked up on the wall all alone, so I added Bill Hader’s Stefon (from Saturday Night Live) to jazz it up a bit.
The Finn Partners DC office has the most amazing cubes in all of the District. We are spoiled with built-in drawers, shelves, and even a cubby for our coats. I try to keep an extra copy of all of the books I have worked on in the past year, so I put those built-in shelves to great use.
