    This is mainly for the designers that work in house, how far would you be willing to commute for work?

    I walk about 4 minutes to work.. x) But I'd be willing to commute longer if I got a job back home...

    It's not always distance I don't think, but time.

    I used to work (in house) 11 miles away. A 25 minute journey on a quiet day, but 30-40 minutes in rush hour.

    I'd not like a longer commute than that.

    Currently my commute is around 5 seconds - 20 with a cup of tea in hand.

    5 seconds seems a bit long for me. I like to literally roll to my right, pick up my laptop, and roll back. 3 seconds tops.

    The job I left to go freelance was an hour each way, needing to be at my desk and working by 8am.
    Up at 6:30 everyday and home by 6:30, earliest ... for 18,500 p/a.
    Job before that was an hour on the tram each way.

    Now it's a 20 minute walk, which I like as it wakes me up. Couldn't do the work from home thing.

    It all depends on journey time. I used to have a 20 mile journey, but it could take me up to 2 hours with M6 traffic. Now I have a 20 minute walk to work, saves me hours every week and saves me about 200 a month in petrol.
