How Boards are impacting your design workflow

Boards provide a flexible space to tell stories, share files, and collaborate with team members throughout the entire design process.

So far, we’ve seen Boards used by designers to do everything from brainstorm ways to improve a checkout process to organize ideas for responsive design.

We’re always excited to see how you’re using this InVision feature in your design process, so we’ve rounded up 3 more of our favorites. Click on each one to view the actual Board.

“I finally started building a gardening app that I’d been thinking about making for years. I had a clear picture of the overall vision of the project floating around in my head, but outside of saving a few inspirational images to a folder on my desktop and adding notes on my phone when I’d get an interaction idea, I didn’t have a solid process for gathering all of those ideas together.

[invTweet via="thesassypickle"]Boards has definitely filled a hole in my design toolset[/invTweet]—being able to see everything in one place, rearrange elements, and add little notes and comments as I go has been really inspiring. Making a Board for my app absolutely jump-started it from being a vague idea to something that’s now actually in development.”

Vicki Ebberts, UX Designer at Undead Labs (note: this Board is her personal project)

“[invTweet via="NickBluth"]We mainly use our Board as a place to display collected ideas and concepts.[/invTweet] Typically, we have one UX designer assigned to each project, but when elements occasionally overlap, [invTweet via="NickBluth"]Boards make it easy to quickly share important assets and ideas[/invTweet] without having to dig through a bunch of files. The nice thing about Boards is that you can easily just drop anything in there, and it’ll be arranged in an an appealing way.”

“[invTweet via="psycut"]I’ve found Boards to be a great tool for ideation and general styling[/invTweet], but especially for conveying initial design solutions to my team. The best thing: I can add anything to the Board—a picture, color palette, font, text, etc.—and lay it out to properly emphasize the feeling and ideas I have for the future app experience. It’s a complex thing to do in a team, so I’m happy to have a great tool to do it.”

Gennady Aronson, UX/UI Designer. Co-founder of MUSE.PRO
