NEW WAYS TO WORK TOGETHER
CO-WORKING – I’ll admit it, I had no idea what
it was, but when an email came through from
Wes Towers from Omnific Design regarding
a shared office in Williamstown, the concept
The idea of co-working seemed to be an
ideal fit for many of our Business West readers.
It suits start-up companies which haven’t quite
got the capital to go out on their own but
have grown out of their home-based set-ups.
Charlene Macaulay’s article on the co-working
concept explores the benefits sharing an office
with other businesses can have.
When it comes to benefits, I have never
taken the subjects of our cover shots for
granted, after all, many business owners can

of Highpoint’s $300 million redevelopment.
Speaking of aesthetics, the art of creating
a visually appealing website is discussed in our
strategies section by Marquez Comelab from
Taylors Hill business Oranges and Lime. In
his second piece for Business West, Marquez
discusses what you need to know before
starting up your own website. He delves in to
website aesthetics, objectives and functions.
Finally, on a personal note, this will be
my last edition editing Business West. I have
enjoyed my time at the helm of this publication
and the people and businesses I have got to
know as a part of it. As a parting message
I would ask you to continue to get behind
the magazine as it promotes the values and
companies you hold dear to your heart.
All the best to the West. [BW]
