Jessica Hische has spent a lot of time learning web design and development over the past few years — and a lot of time asking her husband for help. “I noticed his concentration was impenetrable when he was coding and to bring him out of it was to wish death upon yourself. Once I started doing web work myself I would go intosilence zone mode or code mode often. Now I use the term to describe any time I’m in the zone with work and can ignore just about everything else.” She wanted to make something for her wall to let her studio mate know her code mode status, “so he wouldn’t think I was ignoring him. I just get too deep in work to know when he’s talking to me!”
Jessica hand-lettered the words IN CODE MODE, and the light itself — which is made from powder-coated steel, powder-coated white aluminum, and translucent vinyl — was built by Palette Industries.
You could make/mod a net-connected version or one that knew you were actually coding too!
