some use Photoshop or Illustrator

total overkill, not efficient

mindmapping software

concept mapping software

allows quick organization/rearanging

similar layout to mindmaps

key concepts in the middle

tershiary concepts spider away from main idea

very simple interface

an image focused mindmap rather than text focused

making your mood board

collecting samples, drag and drop media into it, integrate screen shots, isight integration for physical objects

ability to draw on the board, similar to Skitch or Omni Graffle, simple shapes, arrows, symbols

text, titles, notes
