This is a list of items that I use for my work. You're welcome to share your setup just like the people at uses.tech do.

Please look at this page rather from an informative perspective than me wanting to brag about things I have. I am regularly questioning whether having a uses page is a good decision, because the urge to compare is strong.
To that I have to say that I also started with a very basic setup that literally just worked at that time. When my needs grew and I needed more performance, the tools had to adjust.
The desk is a combination of an IKEA GERTON tabletop and the Autonomous SmartDesk DIY Kit.
Snacks and drinks are kept safely on The Tray by Tōrnqvist.
My setup consists of a 14" MacBook Pro (2021) for personal use and a 16" MacBook Pro (2022) for work. As a display at home, I use a 27" LG 32UL750-W in combination with an Apple Magic Keyboard and the Apple Magic Trackpad. At the Studio, I work with a Pro Display XDR.
My daily driver is an iPhone 11 Pro Max. However, I casually put some money aside here and there to upgrade to an iPhone 14 Pro at some point. Dynamic Island just had me sold.
For recordings I use a FOX Microphone and my music plays on a HomePod Mini or BOSE SoundLink speaker. On the go I worship ANC on my AirPods.
All coding happens in Visual Studio Code and the default macOS terminal. I am working with Git using GitHub Desktop. To access any (S)FTP servers, my choice is Transmit.
I create interfaces mostly in Figma, seldom in Sketch. The icons for my designs usually come from Feather Icons or the Carbon Design System Icon Library. Recently I started to create some myself.
When in need, I am also able to work with almost every app of the Adobe Creative Cloud. These include Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro and After Effects.
For browsing, I switch between Arc and Safari. My inbox is kept zero with Tempo and Gmail with Simplify.
I recently switched from Tweek to Apple Reminders for task planning. Keeping up with my schedule is possible with Cron.
As a replacement for spotlight search, Raycast is a huge productivity boost. Tools like Linear, Timing, or Dropover come in handy for many of my other daily tasks.
