    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    Damian GromekEcommerce & Catalog Specialist · Written
    Clean simple layout. Combined with BitBucket, it should give you the perfect amount of access to your projects. Alternatively, good old-fashioned folder sharing. Whether it's FTP clients like FileZilla or any of your current cloud-based file storage that allows for simple sharing.

    For collecting UI, I use mostly Pinterest, easy to add screenshot or url and make collection private or public. For writing , evernote, paper dropbox or real paper & pencil still works :-)

    Awesome for people who prefer visuals. The Chrome plugin makes it a breeze to pin anything you see on the web.

    I use Klart for collecting designs and UX, but Notion.so lets me present them. It's knowledge base making software that's kind of like Evernote + Trello + GDocs 2.0, with other lightweight tools like tables and CRM.

    Whimsical gives you an infinite visual canvas that's perfect for this. Plus it makes it super easy to add flows.

    Agreed. The infinite canvas is a great way to throw all the ideas out there at once. It's easy to comment on specific elements, and easy to bring web pages into the site. Simply paste in a URL and usually it will pull in a preview of the page.

    I use Milanote: https://www.milanote.com/ They have free and paid accounts. I use one board to store links and others per project to add images and inspiration. I also use boards in InVision when I want to share inspiration boards with team members.

    I use bear for writing down ideas. Tag your notes with #idea so it's easy to go back and look at them. If I have any quick design mock-up's or inspiration, I attach them in the same document.
