OpenIDEO: Faster, Cleaner, More Accessible

6 years ago, a team of IDEO designers had a vision for a new type of collaboration. They believed that by opening up IDEO’s tried-and-true design methodologies to a global community, we could come together to solve the world’s most complex problems, faster and better – and thus OpenIDEO was born. Learning and iterating as we go, OpenIDEO has maintained the status of ‘always in beta’ in order to be agile in failure and discovery. 

This week OpenIDEO relaunched with a responsive, mobile-friendly platform. As our community continues to grow and diversify, we know that our collaborative space needs to keep up. This new iteration allows more people to participate, regardless of where they are and what devices they are using. Twice as fast and mobile-friendly, we hope to see more people joining the conversation, whether they are inspired on the go or live somewhere with limited internet.

From a cleaner workspace, to a new notifications panel, to a boosted impact page dedicated to showcasing the power of our community at work – OpenIDEO is rethinking what collaboration looks like. More important than our facelift is what this means for our community, and we are excited to see the inspiring conversations that emerge from increased global connectivity.

Yet this exciting new iteration of OpenIDEO is still a work in progress. We'll continue to test, iterate and adapt in response to your feedback we receive after launch – and we’ll continue to roll out new tools and resources to encourage community collaboration.

Take a look around and let us know what you think. You can also read more about the update from our OpenIDEO co-Founder, Nathan Waterhouse.

Hello there OpenIDEO,

Site is looking great. I am interested in contributing some content to your "voting" blog category. Seems like the newest post is a few years old, but it's holding a top-level position in the main cat nav.

Am I able to blog for OpenIDEO regularly? I would not mind starting the process by writing something you need at the moment. Perhaps we can have a quick call to discuss?

You can reach me anytime through my site or feel free to call my cell 9083584226

I look forward to hearing from you!
