We think spatially
People have been organizing and processing information spatially for centuries, whether by writing in a notebook or posting paper on walls.
This kind of thinking harnesses areas of the brain dedicated to spatial thinking and mapping relationships.
Software that mirrors how we think
Traditional tools like text editors and presentation software have linear interfaces that mimic their output.
Infinite canvas tools instead embrace the messy, circuitous paths we take when brainstorming, sketching, and distilling ideas.
What makes an infinite canvas?
A seemingly limitless canvas empowers users to structure documents in their own way.
Different zoom levels facilitate navigation, mimicking stepping in and away in the real world.
Freeform movement, editing, and duplication of objects keep the infinite canvas the source of truth.
Real-time collaboration enables teams to work exactly the way they want.
