Wake’s mission is to encourage fast and frequent sharing throughout the entire design process. Since we’ve launched, it’s been amazing to see so many teams adopt a more open and transparent way of working. But as the amount of sharing increases, so does the need for lightweight organization.
Spaces are a simple yet powerful way to organize and add context to your work. Team owners and admins can create both Public and Private Spaces which can be used in a variety of ways:
Keep work organized and teams aligned
Brand cohesion is a major challenge for large companies who have many designers working across multiple teams. Spaces gives your teams bucketed areas to collaborate on design work, seek inspiration for new projects, and maintain consistency across all departments. All while providing visibility into what each team is working on.
Get clear about project statuses
Standard project management tools are great for tracking progress, but they’re not tailored for a designer’s visual needs. If your designers want to share early ideas with their team, Wake gives them that opportunity. Spaces gives team members more context into what stage the work is at, allowing everyone to give more productive and contextual feedback.
Keep all your client work together
Spaces are also a great way for agencies to keep all their client work in one place. Teams can focus on the specific needs and visual language for one client without clashing with those of another.
How to get started with Spaces
Getting started with Spaces is simple. Admins and team owners can create Spaces by going into team settings.
Once you’re there, name your Space and choose whether you’d like it to be Public or Private. Public Spaces are visible to everyone on your team while Private Spaces allow you to share with specific teammates.
As you are added to more Spaces, you can easily manage them in one area. By clicking on the ‘eye’ icon, you can follow and unfollow certain Spaces. By unfollowing a Space, we’ll remove it from your main navigation.
When uploading, you simply select the Space you’d like to share to. This is accessible in the Mac uploader dialog and from the web and iOS apps.
How can my team try Spaces?
We’re really excited to see how you use Spaces to improve your design process. Spaces will initially be available on Wake Pro.
