Inspiration Wall

Inspiration Wall


Save and organize creative ideas during a project, or even permanently, in order to have access to them very quickly and let ideas 'simmer' for a while.


Reserve a large physical space on a wall where you collect all the inspirational ideas for everyone to see and elaborate on. Try to find a place where lots of people pass, for example near the coffee machine. A digital inspiration wall is also possible with tools like Pinterest where you can invite people to share ideas on public as well as private pin boards.


In practice

Most designers keep their own (private) inspiration walls (analogue or digital). Many high-end design firms like IDEO reserve flexible wall space to collect the inspiration related to a project.
