    At the risk of sounding ignorant...I don't really get Wake.

    Is it just a moodboard for teams to use and collaborate on?

      I had a team of 3 designers (including myself). We used wake as an instagram type board for our work.

      Whilst we were designing if we ever wanted some quick feedback we would pop it on wake. It would ping all of the team as a slack message (we were split across the office) and we were able to adequately discuss the work in progress.

      We also had tags for the job type, brand it belonged to, medium, and WIP or FINISHED. This allowed me to say search: Jon Web FINISHED and see all Jons finished web work. This was a great feature for me to show an overview to PMs and people above us in the business.

        So it's basically like Invision with better notifications + tags?:)

          For me not exactly, in my team Invision it's for hi-fi mockups, wake just for small ui elements, 2-3 icons etc ;)

          Invision is for holding done designs and building prototypes (from what I know of it), Wake is for during build.

          If I have a WIP I can post it on Wake and my team can see and comment, which really helps you out when you get a little stuck/bogged down in a design.

          And at the end if you say waked a design 10 or so times, you can then search for that jobs tag and see the progression.

          If you ever hire a new designer they can trawl through that work and get up to speed. See why you made some choices and get to know how you work.
