Four years ago this week, we launched the first version of Niice (known internally as Vanilla Niice). Since then we’ve learned a lot about how creative teams of all shapes and sizes collaborate, and the common problems we all face.
The creative process is a conversation, and when creative projects fail it’s rarely due to a shortage of ideas or talent; it’s because communication breaks down. This makes sense when you consider that all of our communication tools were designed for words, not pictures.
We believe there's a need for a tool that’s designed for free-flowing, creative discussions; that enables us to present & critique our ideas in a visual way without having to be in the same room at the same time, or even the same timezone.
So today we’re launching Niice 2: a canvas for creative discussion. It’s a feedback tool that’s easier than email, and a smart, shared visual library for your team.
Any chance you guys will implement copy + pasting images into the boards? Also it would be great to be able to drag in sketch files directly!
We're starting to beef up our file support for the new 'Studio' plan, and Sketch is definitely on the wishlist :) In the meantime, you can drag designs directly into Niice from Sketch like this
And I hear you on the copy+paste support, something we need to look into.
Huge congratulations to the Niice team. You are in my bookmarks bar and we absolutely love the site. I definitely don't use all of the features offered, but the search/boards alone is fantastic.
Thanks Andy! That's great to hear :)
Awesome work Chris & team, looking forward to trying this out!
