Remote working tools

When you work in a creative environment (and are social distancing or self-isolating), keeping close and collaborative can feel hard. Here’s a list of tools that can help that I’ve found useful.

Video calls

Whereby – A solid backup if Google Hangouts isn’t working. In this free version, we can have up to 4 people so good for small group chats. 
Slack – you can make video calls in platform


Google docs – Obvs. 

Designing / Making

Miro – like a collaborative whiteboard, complete with post-it notes
Figma – design platform for digital projects and products 
Marvelapp – great for prototyping or showing flat designs
Canva – thousands of design templates, really good for social posts
Postermywall – quick poster and flyer design with loads of templates
Slidesgo – thousands of Google slides / Powerpoint templates

Workshops with clients 

Mentimeter – amazing UX, lots of functionality
Slido – polls and engagement tool
Fun Retro – good for lists and reflection
