Check out our top picks and vote for your favorite entry below.

The winner will receive a GOOD t-shirt and a year's subscription to keep or send to a friend. Voting will remain open through Thursday, December 15, and we'll announce the winner on Friday, December 16.

Winner: 'Create Your Ideal Workspace' Project

We challenged you to design your ideal workspace from scratch. Here's the winner.


For our latest challenge, we asked you to create your ideal workspace showing us what makes for optimal productivity. From graphic design artists to elementary school principals, our readers convinced us that the ideal workspace would be anywhere other than a conventional room. We received so many creative submissions that we couldn't decide for ourselves, so we turned to our GOOD community to vote on the final winner.

Our winner is Logan Hendricks, whose workspace embedded on an oceanside cliff is a reminder that the ideal work environment is an area we spend most of our time but more importantly, a space which we should enjoy. Hendricks describes his ideal workspace this way:

Project: Create Your Ideal Workspace

We're challenging you to doodle your ideal workspace. For this project, show us a workspace that brings out your greatest talent.


Thanks to the endless stream of information and technological distractions we encounter every day, our ability to concentrate on a single thought process has become increasingly difficult. With constant emails, text messages, and deadlines, we've become accustomed to the interruptions that plague our productivity.

Yet in times of profound contemplation, we all retreat to the trenches we know as our workspaces. Your surroundings are major contributors to all your best ideas, whether creative, self-reflective or flat-out genius. We want you to create a workplace that brings out your best talent.
