Overall Satisfaction with Miro
Miro is an amazing tool for organization, design thinking, and more. It is used to get everyone involved, as it allows to fill boards and boards of information that is highly important for the organization. We use this tool to do brainstorming, to create mood boards, for references and inspiration, as you can add pictures, links, and even pdf files. Many people can be working at the same time, and especially during covid and online work, it was an essential tool for communication and sharing with everyone.
- Provides many different options for organizing ideas, such as boards, flow charts, mind maps, in which you can add pictures, links, and even files.
- Allows working remotely altogether, meaning that it’s a tool that helps people stay connected and updated on what others are doing in real-time.
- It’s a tool that allows people like me (designers) to be fully creative, having the opportunity to develop our design thinking throughout the entire process, from inspiration and references to mood boards and brainstorming.
- When many people work at the same time, it tends to get pretty slow, which could improve.
- Also, it gets really slow to travel around the miro when there’s too much information on the canvas, which could also be improved for faster navigation.
- Having the possibility to add videos and other files such as raw for pictures.
- It has improved productivity, making everyone work on their thing at the same time
- Saying this, it has also decreased or reduced the time in which we develop brainstorming and initial design process, as you now don’t need to send files, wait for the other person to see them and reply back, it’s all instant.
- It has allowed the business to develop more ideas and projects, because, as there’s more free time, we can look for alternative options or start developing other projects.
At first, it can be a bit confusing to understand, as this tool is different from what we’ve known forever. Once you explore around and start to actually use it, it gets easier, and that doesn’t even take long. A few minutes of searching around will make you a pro at using miro.
Because it’s really easy to integrate people and have everyone involved. As I have mentioned previously, it’s a tool that allows having collaborative work and makes group work so much easier (especially during covid and lockdown times). Everyone can navigate at their own pace and understand miro at their own times, but at the end of the day, everyone can be and will be involved.
This has improved our organization's ability to collaborate because, especially during COVID, we had people all over the country and even in other places of the world. Miro allowed everyone to be connected at the same time, working on the same thing, improving like this our group works (that are the main focus in industry’s like the design one).

Canva is another tool that allows collaborative work and remote work, but it is much slower and child-like, with the main focus on designs for presentations. Miro can go ever further, easing the process of brainstorming. Illustrator is a great tool for developing ideas, but it is very complex to use and can take several days or more to learn. Miro is easy, with a few navigations around you can learn.
— it is well suited for brainstorming, recollecting ideas from many different individuals, and having the opportunity to look at them all. — it is well suited for the beginning of the design process, where references, inspiration, and others can be shared with a large group of people —it is also well suited as a medium to share information, as anyone with the link can access it any time. — it is not very appropriate for the actual design development as the tool included are very basic. Other than that, I think it’s ideal.
