Idea Space / 1.11 Office

Idea Space

Idea Space was designed to serve as a supportive communication tool during the ideation phases in the design process, with the specific aim to help team members feel more heard individually in geographically distributed teams.

We learned from user research that the new way of working makes it more challenging for distributed team members to (1) feel connected to the project and each other, and (2) build trust within the team. This triggers several nested problems. Research has shown that making team members ‘feel more heard’ during the ideation phases can help establish trust at the start, resulting in a better collaborative process overall.
