Everything Designers could Dream of and More
Feature 1

A Beautifully Simple Design

Do you want to concentrate on designing? If so, we are here for you. Its simple and stylish UI  helps you work efficiently.

feature 2

All Tasks — Completed or Not — are Important

In most task management Apps, tasks are thought to be useful for a limited time only. That’s understandable. Think of tasks such as buying a bottle of milk at a store, or sending an email to your client. Once those tasks are done, they are no longer important. You don’t need to look back at them after a week, month or year.

However, this is NOT the case for freelance designers. Let’s say you created a banner image for your client and he liked it. Now you’ve got another request from him: to create a new banner image with a different background, or to change a pricing but keep the other design the same. You will need to look back at previous tasks that have been done before.  

In DesignBox, we take completed tasks as important as ongoing tasks. Completed tasks are kept in a way like an ‘archive’. You can easily find them anytime you need.

Feature 3

Files and Tasks Make a Pair - Reach them in 1 second!

Have you ever had trouble in finding all the materials you need to complete your design tasks? If so, we have a solution for you. You can link a folder to each task in DesignBox.

Do you want the quickest way to access a folder you are looking for? Then get the most from our Keyword Searching. No need to waste your time in gathering all the materials any more. Just immerse yourself in designing and be more creative.

feature 4

Large Notepad is Here to Help You

Client’s request details and your design ideas - Do you have lots of things to remember for your tasks? Then try our large notepad. Detailed information is always here for you. You will not miss anything, even when you are fully immersed in designing.
