Judes first discovered the Western Sydney Startup Hub through attending Spacecubed’s community events and decided that our coworking space would be the perfect place to grow her graphic design business.
We recently sat down with Judes to find out what she is currently working on and learn about her experience as a Spacecubed member.
Judith Tan Design provides layout design for industries which publish reports, white papers and other text-and-data-heavy documents. Judes shared that she is currently working on three reports, as well as a couple of smaller document and brochure designs for a variety of industries, including NGO, law, telecoms and government.
The Western Sydney Startup Hub’s coworking space has proven to be a productive environment for Judes to focus, with her sharing, “I have discovered that my surroundings have a direct impact on how I work!”
We asked Judes what she has enjoyed about becoming a Spacecubed member, where she shared how she loves the design of the workspace and social aspects of coworking.
“I rave about the beautiful space and friendly community whenever I have the opportunity to bring it up in conversation.”
“It's always great to have conversations with different people, and I learn a lot from them too,” Judes added.
Spacecubed members are able to enjoy free access to our various community events that we regularly hold which helps them build relationships and find inspiration from other like-minded individuals.
“I love attending the networking events and meetups,” shared Judes, explaining how having the opportunity to make valuable connections has led to new friendships blossoming.
Judes also volunteered to be a mentor in Spacecubed’s Office Hours program late last year which runs out of our spaces Australia-wide both in person and virtually.
These free 15 minute sessions allow individuals to connect directly with industry experts and Judes described the experience as “a great opportunity” to share her expertise with people looking to grow their startups and businesses.
Judes shared that her main goals for 2024 include growing in reliability and building better relationships with her current clients, whilst also adding that she would like to take some of her varied interests and skills and use them to set up multiple income streams.
“In addition, I might explore rebranding my business to trade under a studio name. I will have to research if this is a good idea, and perhaps chat with clients and draw on wisdom from others in the WSSH community - as I suspect that many clients like the fact that they are working with a real, individual human,” Judes concluded.
