Yes but I can't do them at work. Hence the stuff I do at home is 10 times better!

I find smoking joints helps me work later in the evening and not be so bothered about sitting in the same chair for the last 15 hours, which, lets face it is undoubtably unatural.
Sometimes the afrementioned smoke makes you less able to concentrate, but for the most part, it helps even the most banal problem seem interesting and helps me throw 100% of my effort into whatever I've got on at that time.
One interesting side effect of smoking (too much/all the time) is that if I stop smoking, for about 5 days afterwards my concentration is awful, often I dont have a few days to waste, so I go back to smoking. which (after a break) often sends the brain into overdrive.
drugs haven't made me a better designer. they've helped make me a better person, though, which translates into other areas
although i can say mescaline has helped me understand color and light theory better
It's not about them making you a better designer, but they can put you in a better state of mind to get shit done, help let stress go and focus on goals, relax the mind when it's overly focused on a problem, a bit like ignoring something you can't remember so it can pop into your head an hour later.
pot makes you slow and generally drugs make you think a random idea is genius. when you've back to normal you realise it was just a shit idea.
i tried drawing on pills before, thought it was great, woke up the next day and the illustration with 'subtle shadows' was basically a grey page. just dont do it.
"if you need abstract thinking or are doing repetitive, boring tasks, smoke pot.
if you need to stay up all night to make a deadline, use amphetamines or coke.
if you have an enormous complex problem that requires clarity and creative visualization, use acid."
What if I need to do all three?
makes for some good ideas, but not really more productive
i use beer, gin and wine. largely to help me get drunk. it's all about understanding your drugs and using them to achieve what you want to achieve.
boshing 600mg phenibut twice a day is a good start towards productivity.
I couldn't even begin to get any work done each day if I didn't have Tea.
I think the drugs used in this industry are not the ones mentioned. I can smoke a joint or drink or do coke but a day later I feel like shit.
If there is a drug that helps you work it would be Provigil or something like that that helps increase your concentration/ attention span.
When I'm out pioneering the wonderous terrain of the chemical zone, I like to dress up as a spaceage police ranger, I also get my friends to call me Cobalt 2012, it really adds to the experience. Sometimes it's good to rub tiger balm in my eyes and clamp crocodile clips onto my nipples, it's pretty extreme and you squares probably won't be able to handle it. Me and my friends are born creative explorers so we're always coming up with zacky ideas, this one time we figured out how to physically heal self harm scars simply by using isotropic concoctions of Ketamin extract, Rorer 714 and the tip of my bellend – I'd simply apply the paste to my flesh pipette and rub it on her clitoris and she'd feel sometimes feel better. Sometimes the side effects would make her cry and call me 'Popsicle' but that's cool, we're fuck buddies anyhow, like y'know.
I bet you could come up with some great ideas while taking a dump in a shower when you're high and trying to fall asleep.
