Overall Satisfaction with Miro

At Ubisoft Toronto, but also at my previous company, Miro quickly became the main collaboration tool for the design and production team. It's a great tool that supports the various stages of the creative design process - I can easily kick-off by using the brainstorming template. Once I have sorted my thoughts and ideas, I switch to using different existing templates that I can configure into something that fits my specific needs for the design. Flowcharts, dependencies, feature overviews, and breakdowns are a few things that I can easily create and share with others on my team. Being able to have multiple users access the same document simultaneously, and allowing each one to work on it together, has improved the collaborative aspect of being a designer while working from home. Miro is certainly not replacing design documents but has greatly improved the creative thinking and collaboration process, and being able to share it with a team.
  • Collaboration.
  • Easy ways to structure information.
  • Intuitive controls
  • Templates that are versatile and easily adapted.
  • Supporting the game design process with templates.
  • Communication and understanding changes and progress.
  • Miro has decreased the time between the creative design process and having a design document ready for approval.
  • It has improved communication between teams - fewer meetings are required to share information and visualize needs.
While Miro is improving a lot, I still find it difficult to maneuver effortlessly without destroying some part of my page. Locking is a helpful tool, but having to switch back and forth between locking and unlocking can feel disruptive.
Miro is one of the easiest tools to integrate - starting from the installation time to including it in the creative process.
Miro has improved communication between teams. I am able to easily share information or work in progress with the right people, who, in return, can effortlessly leave their input, feedback, and questions on the same page. It has also simplified communication - often, all it needs is some example images that help convey a design. Instead of having to go back and forth to communicate, Miro allows me to prepare all the relevant information in an easily digestible way.

Do you think Miro delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Miro's feature set?


Did Miro live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Miro go as expected?


Would you buy Miro again?


I'd immediately recommend Miro to any designer who needs to collaborate with other disciplines, and who uses Miro for creative progress. Miro is great as a reference but I would not recommend it as the sole source of information, due to the lack of being able to set up a structure, and since the content is not easily searchable.
