Frequently asked questions
What will I get out of this?
You will get a well-designed plan for your coming years, and help in reaching the goal that you’ve set for yourself. You will create and update this plan in a similar way as you’d work on a design project, but with a helper.
Can I try it first?
Sure! Getting started is totally free. Sign up for the Ideator, try sketching out some of your ideas and evaluate their potential.
What types of designers is this for?
Designers from all levels and types of design can do this. If you know the basics of the design process, like diverging, converging, ideating and iterating, then you’ll be able to turn your career into a design project.
Am I too senior/junior for this?
If you have some years of work ahead of you that you want to make a plan for, then you’re not too senior. You’re probably too junior if you don’t have any work experience yet.
Do I need this if I'm happy at work?
Probably the best moment to look ahead is when you’re happy. It allows you to take your time, don’t make rash decisions and keep your eyes on the goal.
Should companies / bosses provide this?
Companies can pay for this as they benefit big time from employees who know what they want and why they chose their job.
No matter who pays: all data will always be owned by the person who’s creating a plan.
Can companies / bosses have access?
Not directly, but we do have a fun little method built into the app that helps people create a well-designed manifesto based on their plan. We believe that sharing goals and plans is essential to good professional relationships.
How does it work?
We made building your career plan look a lot like a design project – with a helper. It starts with diverging and moves into converging. The help you get from the app is a lot about structure, focus, feedback and staying into the groove.
If you want to see the app being used in reality, check out our how-it-works area! Or simply sign up free and see for yourself.
How much time will I spend in the app?
You can decide how much time this takes you – the app always has something new waiting for you, be it feedback, inspiration, a next iteration, a self-test or something else that can help you create your plan and reach your goal ✌️.
What are recurring topics in the app?
Some topics that are important for creating your career plan:
- Personal branding
- Design leadership
- Personal leadership
- and much more.
Can I still be opportunistic when I have a plan?
You’d better be! The app helps you look at your career in terms of qualities to develop and actions to take. This makes it much easier to have a sharp eye for opportunity.
The app will invite you to run a little tweaking sprint every some time, so that it stays fresh and relevant.
