Scratching our own itch
All we wanted was to get feedback from our design friends. Between emailing, Dropbox, Droplr, Skype and Facebook we got our feedback. But it was scattered, it was lost, it was never clear enough.
So, we tried every design feedback app out there. But they shouted: they were big! feature-filled! could do anything! solved every problem!— and with that they were overwhelmingly complicated. The tools became the distraction. We just wanted something simple, so we made it.
What motivates us
We want to make feedback an egoless standard; an indispensable part of the design process. We want to do our part to encourage designers to seek feedback and not praise. To enable designers to truly collaborate with every discipline that make up a team.
Here’s how we’re going so far
We’re not a project management tool
We keep our focus simple: we are about visual collaboration and the documenting of it. We want you to get your point across.
Tools get complicated when they try to be everything. They check every box, but the real people who want to use them don’t use them. We’re not a project management tool. But we do play nice with them. Drop a Red Pen link into the existing way you communicate: Basecamp, Slack, Jira, Trello, whatever and Red Pen’s simplicity extends the experience.
