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.

Boards has definitely filled a hole in my design toolsetTwitter Logo—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.&#8221;</p> <p><em>–<a href="https://www.twitter.com/thesassypickle" target="_blank">Vicki Ebberts</a>, UX Designer at Undead Labs (note: this Board is her personal project)</em>']<a href="https://projects.invisionapp.com/boards/4A59N37HKFY6/" target="blank"><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/blog.invisionapp.com/uploads/2015/10/100815_fav_boards_ebberts.jpg" alt="Boards" width="800" height="1420" class="size-full wp-image-15249" /></a>

We mainly use our Board as a place to display collected ideas and concepts.Twitter Logo Typically, we have one UX designer assigned to each project, but when elements occasionally overlap, Boards make it easy to quickly share important assets and ideasTwitter Logo 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.&#8221;</p> <p><em>–<a href="https://www.twitter.com/NickBluth" target="_blank">Nick Bluth</a>, UX Designer at BambooHR</em><br />']<a href="https://projects.invisionapp.com/boards/ZJ58NXAP8UQF/" target="blank"><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/blog.invisionapp.com/uploads/2015/10/100815_fav_boards_bluth.jpg" alt="Boards" width="800" height="1264" class="size-full wp-image-15250" /></a>

I’ve found Boards to be a great tool for ideation and general stylingTwitter Logo, 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.&#8221;</p> <p><em>–<a href="https://www.twitter.com/psycut" target="_blank">Gennady Aronson</a>, UX/UI Designer.
