As a design facilitator, having an easy-to-use tool my teams can collaborate, think, and learn together in is a huge relief. Almost every team I work with on MURAL converts to using it.
Running in-person meetings and workshops is hard – running them with distributed and remote participants is even harder. We’ve got you covered with powerful and convenient tools to make your job easier.
Access over 100 frameworks and templates with your MURAL membership. Search by category to pull up a template for your next session. Create a new canvas from a template and design your own framework with customized instructions.
Choose the right template for your meeting or workshop goals:
Mind map a process
Run a client discovery session
Plan a service design workshop
Facilitate design sprints
Map customer journeys
Evaluate a plan
Debrief after an event
Brainstorm a new brand strategy
Reinvest the thousands of dollars you save on travel costs with remote meetings and workshops and put them toward building your team’s expertise.
Invite as many people as you need with no-cost temporary access for workshop attendees and external guests.
Set timers for activities, hide and reveal sections of your work area, and give everyone an easy way to contribute without distracting others.
Share text and images, make comments, track version control, and run a variety of design thinking activities without switching from tool to tool.
Permanently eliminate “transcribe sticky notes” from your workflow. After a session is over, send a link to everyone with a record of your session output.
MURAL canvases can be extended when you run out of room. When you stick a sticky, it stays there as long as you need it. Drag and drop to move it in seconds.

With creative and critical thinking sessions, it’s easy to get lost, lose focus and fall into the trap of having useless, open-ended, unstructured discussions. Use this template any time you have a group of people who need to make decisions, solve problems or discuss challenges.
AJ&Smart created this exercise, inspired by the core principles of the design sprint, to replace unstructured discussion with a clear process.
Teams often lack alignment, both in terms of having a shared understanding of their current situation, and also making sure that they’re pointed in the right direction. Use this template to solicit opinions across a team in order to identify themes and transform them into a shared plan of action.
LUMA Institute developed this recipe to help teams create alignment and co-create a roadmap for their work that they can rally behind.
There is no secret recipe for high-performing teams, but establishing agreements and norms for how you work together will optimize your team for better results. Use this template to facilitate a conversation with your team around how you want to work and what you expect from one another.
XPLANE created this worksheet to provide teams a guide for establishing agreements on how they will work together.
When a team is genuinely relaxed and comfortable, they can unlock their true potential and do their best work. Use this template any time you want to break the ice before a meeting or workshop so you can continue on to a productive session.
Etch Sprints created this icebreaker activity as a fun, engaging way to kick off any meeting, especially with remote participants.
You don’t always have the time or resources to conduct a full design sprint, but you do want to prototype and test your concept before fully building it. Use this template to fly through your next prototyping phase and test more efficiently - whether you're in a design sprint or not.
Voltage Control developed this collaborative prototyping process to unleash the entire team when you need to build a prototype quickly.
