Should designers show up everyday at the office?(

    If that is their optimal way of being efficient, then yes. If showing up every day is counterproductive and results in less work being done, then no. We're all different.

    Over the years I have learned my own best schedule to Get Shit Done™, and that's being in an office four days a week and only ever being there 4-5 hours at a time. I tend to get most stuff done if I get to the office around 10am, grabbing a quick desk lunch around 1pm and then leaving around 3pm to get few hours break. I then work from home in the evening for two or three hours, and voila...eight hour work day but split up into chunks. If I sit at a desk for more than four or five hours my creative side takes a huge hit and everything becomes poo, so it doesn't make sense to keep me in an office from 9-5.

      I pretty much work the same Ix! So similar to what you're doing. It doesn't make sense to sit around if you're not productive. Working in chunks of 2-3-4 hours does help my creativity as well.
