Developed by BitConfused, a startup in Oklahoma City that produces web-based solutions to common problems for businesses in a simple and useful way, CAGE is a playground for agencies, design teams and freelancers to present, share and collaborate on their work.
“Clients should be wowed when they receive design mockups, but a lot of that is lost in mundane collaboration processes,” CAGE Co-Founder, Sandip Patel said. “Emails get messy. Feedback is out of context. Meetings run long. These things put strain on client relationships.”
CAGE eliminates the need for email correspondence, face to face time-wasting meetings and housing folders locally of mockups and revisions. CAGE offers a way for you to simply upload your work and share a URL, from which those collaborating can add comments and notes right on the artwork itself – ensuring that conversations are about the work itself and what specifically the comment is in relation to.
CAGE features include:
- Centralized location to present and receive client feedback
- Team functionality
- Threaded design notes
- Group collaboration and notes
- Project presentation/slideshow
- Unique URLs to share via email or IM
- Works with browser-friendly image types
- Project statistics
- Privacy controls
If you’re a designer that uses Dribbble.com, Behance, Creattica or other forums to showcase your work, CAGE would be a great tool to add to your repertoire to not only instill greater team productivity but produce work that will shine even brighter when shown to the general public.
