Dogs at the office are a stress reliever for everyone. Need proof? In 2018, BusinessInsider.com wrote about a study that looked at whether office pets reduce stress levels and boost productivity.
Createscape is dog-friendly, and we sure have an eclectic bunch of pooches around the office with a lot of personality. In this member interview, we asked the dogs themselves to tell us a bit more about what they’re up to and what their backstory is.

The word “coworking” was established in 1999 by Bernard De Koven. He wrote, “When I coined the word coworking, I was describing a phenomenon I called ‘working together as equals.’” In 2005 the first official coworking space was opened in San Francisco by a computer programmer named Brad Neuberg. The office, which didn’t seem to have a name, was inspired by hackerspaces of the mid to late 1990s.
James Cobb works remotely as a graphic designer at Red Hat (the open source software company) and Jason Brock is a UX and visual designer for Red Hat. Check out the full member interview with both of them about their collaborative experience at Createscape and what they do outside of work.
Createscape was developed to be a place for creative types in Austin to come together for work and inspiration.
