The company I work for has recently introduced a blanket ban on headphones, including in the art department.
Personally I'm failing to see the rationale behind this from a creative perspective; The music and podcasts I listen to on a daily basis provide inspiration, education, entertainment and block out the usual office noises that distract me from doing my job as an artist.
I'm struggling to see the benefits of such a rule so thought I would come on here to get some of your educated opinions.
So what are the pros and cons of letting artists and designers use headphones in the office? Is this rule more commonplace than I realised?
