Rules are thrown out, we are all pioneers here. Sure internet access and ample power are important but I believe that with some clever design you can create your optimum personal space and make it as good or better as the old cubicle ever was.

What Makes a Great Zoom Room?

Good lighting:

Lighting is one of the primary components. There are all sorts of suggestions and solutions,

  • Don’t you hate the glare off your glasses?
  • Don’t you hate a circle in the middle of someone’s pupil?
  • Don’t you hate that you look like you look sleep-deprived with big bags under your eyes?
  • Don’t you hate it when someone on a call is backlit with a huge window?

Absence of Visual Distractions:

  • Don’t you hate it when someone is using a distracting background that fades in and out?
  • Don’t you hate it when a cat is wandering onto the set?

Sure you can shut down your camera but how engaged are you going to be while you are dealing with a distraction that appeared in your image.
