Designers' digital inspiration and resources are scattered across different services making it difficult to keep track of and access when needed.
We went out and interviewed product designers, graphic designers and visual artists asking them what tools they used to organize their digital resources. The primary responses were bookmarks, Pinterest and Slack.
Bookmarks are texy heavy making them difficult to navigate for visual learners like designers. They are also stuck in the browser making them incapable of being shared with collaborators.
Pinterest's target market isn't the workplace. Users are unable to collect certain forms of content such as articles, webpages and VR experiences that designers utilize in their workflow.
Slack is a productive tool for sharing resources, but content often get lost in Slack conversations because of its chat format.
