Long hours at the office to meet those deadlines. Working into the early hours to get that freelance done. A couple of late nights at the pub. Sooner or later it all starts to take its toll, and it's no secret that the life of a busy designer, however much you incorporate biophilic design (opens in new tab) into your studio, is not always condusive to getting a decent night's kip.
