Member of the Week: Sarah Kennedy

Sarah Kennedy is a designer for Skew studio, London. Skew is a multi disciplinary studio which works taking entertainment brands from Screen to Shelf. Skew is a diverse team of designers and work across Textiles, Fashion, Packaging, Branding and Web Design working for clients including the BBC, Nickelodeon and Disney. They have clients all over the world and they are really interested to work for more clients here in Germany. Sarah is our regular guest at betabreakfast, she has been a member of betahaus since May.

What inspired you to start working as a graphic designer?

I work as a designer for Skew. The great thing about Skew is you get to work across such a wide range of different projects and different design fields. I may work on a Web project one day and a Textile project the next. This is a really great chance to look at projects from different angles and offer something new and exciting. I work with the team in London remotely and we Skype each other to share inspiration and ideas.

What made you decide to move to Berlin ?

I’m from the North of England. I worked in London for 4 years after university. During my studies I came to Berlin for 3 months for an internship at c.neeon and I always wanted to come back. After 4 years in London I wanted a change and Berlin seemed to be the perfect choice.

How would you compare the work environment here for designers to that in London?

Berlin has a much more relaxed atmosphere than London. Skew Studio is based in London’s East End, near Shoreditch. The studio has a real creative energy and buzz about it which is similar to the betahaus. All the designers get together once a week to discuss the projects we are working on and where in a project we are up to, kind of like a betabreakfast.

How do you like the atmosphere at betahaus? What do you like about betahaus, and what do you feel could be improved?

The betahaus has been a great place to come and work in Berlin. I could start working as soon as I got to Berlin and I have met so many interesting people since I got here. Betabreakfast is my favourite time of the week, I feel inspired, full of coffee and ready to start a busy day!

You are working with Skew Studio in London, which  focus on the entertainment industry. How did you get involved with the Skew Studio? 

I did an internship at Skew when I finished University. After that I worked at Skew as a freelancer for a year and then went full time.

What kind of advice would you give to young designers looking to become successful these days?

Get involved with as many different projects as possible while studying and after University. Internships are a great way to meet people and find out what you really want to do.

The new space is six stories spread out across 2800 sqm. We’ll be renovating the building with our members in mind, so here’s what we can promise:

  • 5 Floors of Coworking Areas
  • Event Spaces
  • More Meeting Rooms
  • More Team Rooms
  • More Call Boxes
  • A Rooftop Terrace
  • A Café

We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!

when do you need a notary?

We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.

The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node

The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.

We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next. 

We want to hear from you! Email us at themove@betahaus.com or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!). 

We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!

We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!

Not a blockchain startup but looking for a coworking space? Be sure to check out the flexible membership options at betahaus!

Finally, You describe your target group as LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability), which is a very niche market. Can you tell us more about what type of people they ARE and what theY value? What's some advice you can share to other startups targeting this market?
