A list of products, tools, and niceties that I use for work. I've only included things that I would whole-heartedly recommend.

A solid and (relatively) affordable DSLR that hasn't let me down since ~2015.
A reliable and versatile lens for all occasions.
My favourite prime lens (fixed focal length). The low f-stop makes for some gorgeous background blur. It's a great lens for video, too.
An incredibly comfortable and durable ergonomic desk chair. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat, a priceless item!
Beautifully minimal and hardwearing mousepad. I was aprehensive about buying this ($36 in 2015) but after years of daily use, it looks better than ever.
I love espresso-based coffee and this machine helps me make the perfect shot from home.
Very tasty coffee roasted nearby (Leeds, UK). Their Ethiopian batches are sublime!
A cool looking reusable coffee cup made from coffee husks. Sustainable, durable, and non-toxic. I've got the 6oz version in black.
Design tool for prototyping websites and user-interfaces.
I can't recommend Notion enough. This app consolidates my day-to-day task board, simple notes, and long-form writing. It's a joy to organise and really simple to find what i'm looking for. It's Trello, Sheets, Evernote etc, all rolled into one and looks 10x better.
My code editor of choice. Really happy with it. I use Dank Mono as the font.
Really simple drag-and-drop image compression.
A fast, free, and private DNS for your phone, made by Cloudflare.
I've started transferring my domains to Cloudflare's domain registrar. They don't add mark-up on renewal prices so it often costs ~70% less of than what i'd pay elsewhere to renew my domain names.
I use netlify to host all of my static websites at the moment. It's wonderfully simple to use and the continuous deployment is a great feature. Whenever my GitHub repo updates, Netlify automatically re-deploys the site with the new changes.
