May 8, 2013 – Collaboration for the Creative Set is a collaboration tool that’s part Google Drive, part Pinterest. Professionals in design-related industries can collect links, videos, profiles, photos, and presentations to post on their murals, and then share those murals as a way to map out the entire creative process with their teams. cuts right to the chase and invites you to start creating a new mural immediately after signing up for an account. Give your mural a title, add it to a “room,” and select the privacy level (deciding for yourself whether it should be private, public, or open only for selected colleagues to view). Select any files you’d like to add to your mural from your desktop, and drag those files right into your mural. The files you’ve dropped into place will start popping up on your mural immediately, and you can reposition or resize them in whichever way makes sense to you. Adding links to your mural is just as easy. Drag a URL onto the page, and a brief summary and image from the page you’re linking to will immediately appear. When you’re done adding content to your mural, it’s time to share.

The collaborators you’ve invited to join your mural can start discussions focused on any specific area in your mural. Adding an @ symbol before a person’s name triggers an email notification, meant to let the person know they’ve been mentioned in an ongoing discussion. Everything that’s added or changed within the mural gets included in a mural log, which you can review to track progress at any point.
