Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between the Ideator and the Builder?

The Ideator is a fun way to create tangible ideas for what’s next in your career, so they won’t get tangled up or lost.

The Builder helps you to create a plan for your best career idea, in a way that’s a lot like a design project. When it’s tangible, it’s easy to get motivated by it, remember it and adjust it.

What will I get out of this?

You will get clear career ideas out of the Ideator.
And a tangible, adjustable plan out of the Builder.

This will give you an incredible edge over 90% of designers around you.
Or, as our friend Tom puts it: ‘it’s absolutely critical

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 unless you, as an individual designer, decide to talk about it.
We applaud that, as 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 the Ideator which helps you sketch, collect and evaluate your career ideas.
If you have an idea you love, you can use the Builder to take it all the way: designing a plan, and realizing it.

I love serendipity! Can I still be opportunistic?

Making a tangible plan will give you something new: focused opportunism. With a plan, opportunity turns into something you can spot and even attract.

The Ideator is about your ideas, and the Builder 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.
