Just to mix the forum topics a bit ;) so what do you like to have when you design?

For example, I absolutely must have music that I like on at all times else it gets too quiet and my creativity juices stop. Snacks are also important. :) I often have to optimize my computer a bit so it works perfectly smooth.

So what are some things you need when you design? Also, what are some things you do when you’re having a designer’s block and just cannot think at all?

COFFEE rulez :D

oh, and sometimes music, although I best work when it’s quiet and I’m left alone with my thoughts :) – anything else just distracts me…

Oh, did I mention a perfect chair and desk, along with a min. 20” monitor? :D
