Find The Perfect Coworking Space For Creatives

By Varun Bodhi


Creatives thrive when they are in an environment that nurtures and enables them to express their ideas. A bland traditional office that feels stifling or a working-from-home environment that imbues isolation simply doesn't cut it. But coworking spaces for creatives? Now that's a great solution.

Coworking spaces are vibrant and collaborative in nature which is ideal for creatives who commonly bounce ideas off each other. However, not all coworking spaces are created equal. Your creative coworking space needs the right resources to bring your vision to life and this requires a provider that has created an entire ecosystem.

With flexible layouts, networking opportunities, and a buzzing atmosphere, these spaces provide the perfect backdrop for your next big project. Say goodbye to dull cubicles and hello to a community that understands your creative journey.

Let's get into what it takes to make amazing creative spaces.

Workspace Needs & Considerations for Creatives

Functionality with some inspiration is what creative professionals seek when finding a workspace. Here's what we suggest for those in the creative industry to look for tailored environments.

  • Aesthetics

An abundance of natural sunlight is an unbeatable solution for boosting mood and productivity. Ensure the coworking space has large windows and consider if they are accompanied by inspiring views. Sometimes it takes a window overlooking the city from the top with an ocean to the side to get the creative juices flowing.

It goes without saying that the coworking space should be designed to suit your needs. Modern, stylish furnishing and perhaps an exposed ceiling that gives a rustic touch will be better than plain private offices with white walls. Colours make an even bigger difference if you plan on establishing a photography studio in a shared workspace.

Keep an eye out for art installations and greenery. Some coworking spaces, such as Servcorp, have many unique and prestigious artworks which complement the creative energy you might seek!

  • Flexible spaces

A co working space by nature is flexible, but creatives require more versatility depending on their unique tasks. For example, quiet zones are a must for when you need to separate yourself from the hustle and bustle of the workspace. Private phone booths are also ideal when communicating with clients to ensure your business still remains professional and maintains a credible image.

Breakout rooms, event spaces, and a kitchen are a must for casual meetings or relaxing with a cup of coffee while getting away from your work. And while areas with a relaxed 'vibe' are great, always ensure to have professional meeting rooms equipped with screens, and great technology when presenting or meeting clients. Boardrooms are especially important for creatives such as graphic designers

It's best to have a balance between open areas for collaboration and private areas for focused work, or else employees face the risk of losing concentration.

  • Amenities

Beyond the basics of a physical workspace, a creative coworking space also needs amenities to support its day-to-day operations. Technology such as high-speed Wi-Fi for research, communication, and sharing large files is a must, among many other facilities.

Ensure the coworking provider has on-site printing and scanning equipment to manage your documents and marketing materials easily. Another bonus is having access to soundproof rooms or studio spaces for recording podcasts or videos and backdrops suitable for product photography.

  • Community and Location

Working in a like-minded community is a major benefit and valuable asset. The regular networking events, workshops, social gatherings with other members, and opportunities to team up with other creatives are phenomenal. You might luck out and join an event with experienced professionals offering business mentoring.

Most importantly, don't forget the location and accessibility. These can significantly influence your business and impact client interactions and the time it takes for your team to arrive at work. Whether you're in the creative industry, an established enterprise, or a not-for-profit organisation, at the end of the day, your location speaks about the success of your business.
