Spacedeck – Collaboration for Creatives

Spacedeck is a collaboration and communication tool made with creative professionals in mind. By providing teams with a seamless environment to discuss ongoing projects, Spacedeck works to reduce organizational overhead and encourage workspace breakthroughs.

Start brainstorming with your team within the Spacedeck platform. Create “folders” or “spaces” for all the projects you’re working on, and share those workspaces with colleagues via email. Encourage participants to add their thoughts on a large brainstorming board. This board can be edited and rearranged quickly, and participants can drag or drop virtually any type of file directly onto the board. Unlike physical brainstorming boards, Spacedeck boards provide an unlimited amount of space for users to add content to. Spacedeck will send you instant notifications when colleagues join your project or comment on specific elements within those projects. You can also assign tasks to particular teammates.

In addition to its tools for ideation and brainstorming, Spacedeck also offers features that professionals can use to create mock-ups and manage company tasks. Users can easily search for content across the Spacedeck platform, pinpointing specific comments that were added to “spaces” and reviewing the images uploaded by colleagues during past brainstorming sessions.

  • Visualize important concepts with teammates
